E.W. Scripps has tapped two veteran journalists for its Scripps News venture. Scripps News, which launches Jan. 1, combines the power of the company’s Newsy network, its Local Media national desk and its Washington Bureau into one organization. The combined operation, the company says, “will better and more efficiently serve national audiences and Scripps local stations.”
Steve Turnham has been promoted to Washington bureau chief for Scripps News, leading the 24/7 news network’s politics and investigative reporting and impact initiatives. Turnham will remain as managing editor at Scripps News. He had previously served as Newsy’s managing editor since 2020. Newsy becomes Scripps News on Jan. 1.
Ethan Nelson has been named head of Court TV, effective immediately. He has been in the role on an interim basis since January 2022. In this position Nelson leads the on-air presentation and day-to-day operations of the popular multi-platform network devoted to live court coverage, in-depth legal reporting and expert analysis of the nation’s most important and compelling trials. He will also be responsible for program development, business development and long-form production for the Scripps News Division.
