The E.W. Scripps Company is a well-known and well-respected employer that manages many of the news organizations across the US. It began as a chain of daily newspapers in 1878 and eventually grew into a media conglomerate. Its headquarters is in Cincinnati, just a short drive from where I live, but its reach is massive.
For those not immediate familiar, there’s probably a Scripps-owned TV news or radio station in your area.
Scripps has now rolled out Alexa skills for many local new markets. Cincinnati is definitely available already, and I see places like Buffalo, Indianapolis, and Omaha. There’s quite a few, with many more on the way. You can listen to your local news cast or add it to your Alexa daily briefing.
