Scripps Books Its Next Earnings Conference


E.W. Scripps CompanyThe newly enlarged E.W. Scripps Company will have its first post-closing earnings conference call next month in the wake of its acquisition of Journal. It’s scheduled for Friday 5/8/15 at 9AM eastern.

It will provide a unique window into how things are going on both the television and the radio side of the broadcasting business.

Describing its new broadcast group, it stated, “Scripps is one of the nation’s largest independent TV station owners, with 33 television stations in 24 markets and a reach of nearly one in five U.S. households. It also owns 34 radio stations in eight markets.”

The newspaper holdings of both companies are now under the control of a different, entirely independent company, Journal Media Group.
