Newsy is a video news network that produces short-form video news pieces that provide breaking news and updates across U.S. and world news, policy and politics, science and health, entertainment, technology, business and sports. Newsy was founded by Jim Spencer in 2008 and acquired by the E.W. Scripps Company for $35 million on January 1, 2014. Today it is a wholly owned subsidiary of the E.W. Scripps Company.[1]

Its video content is available in on-demand and linear formats on over-the-top (OTT) services, and at newsy.com.[2]

Newsy won a National Edward R. Murrow Award for its news documentary, "The War and Money Project," in 2015.[3]

Newsy is headquartered in Columbia, Missouri. It has four other U.S.-based offices in Cincinnati, Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C.[4]

In 2016, Newsy launched its Brand Studio, which offers brands and agencies native video advertising that supplement Newsy's pre-roll and mid-roll video advertising.[5]

In September 2017, it announced to become a cable channel after parent company E.W. Scripps acquired the carriage contracts of Retirement Living Television.[6]
