"Scripps has long been, and will continue to be, deeply committed to investigative reporting , both locally and nationally, for TV, print and digital audiences," said Rich Boehne, president and CEO of The E.W. Scripps Company. " Ellen Weiss brings years of experience that will help further strengthen our journalistic voice at a time when our audiences crave quality and integrity. All Scripps markets will benefit from the investigations and community-changing journalism that we expect from our Washington team through Weiss' leadership."Unlike many peer companies in the industry, Scripps is forging ahead with its strategy to more extensively cover the nation's capital and national topics. Investigations and data research by Scripps are cited in arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court and are leading to legislative changes. These actions are a testament to the company's mission to serve communities. The company expanded the staff in 2012 to fully implement a video journalism team that now creates video content uniquely structured to appeal to different audiences on different digital platforms.
