Scripps Company and Scripps Networks Interative. The E.W Scripps Company kept the newspapers, TV stations, licensing/syndication. The Scripps Network Interative kept the TV networks. In 2011 E.W. Scripps bought the television arm of McGraw-Hill bringing it's number of TV stations to 19 and in 2015 it bought the Journal Media Group out of Milwaukee WI. It was later merged with Gannett Company.

Specimen stock certificates are certificates that were archived by printers and the company as perfect examples of the company’s stock issue. Specimen’s can be identified by their “specimen” stamp, stamped holes spelling “specimen”, or they are often issued with a serial number of a series of zeros. Often, they are also issued with no serial number at all. Specimens can also represent a design that was never issued. All of these attributes make the specimen stock certificate rarer than the issued version of the share. Many enthusiasts collect specimens as a whole new category of Scripophily.
