NAB Show is the world's largest and most comprehensive convention, showcasing the convergence of media, entertainment and technology. It is hosted by the National Association of Broadcasters and takes place April 6-11 in Las Vegas.

Scripps President and CEO Adam Symson said the company's robust presence at NAB reflects the company's growth and industry leadership.

"Scripps' history as an entrepreneurial company focused on the consumer makes it well-positioned to anchor conversations across the media ecosystem at NAB Show," said Symson. "On the National Media side of our business, we have grown a strong portfolio of brands that are leaders in their space, from Stitcher's and Triton's strong positions in the digital audio ecosystem to Newsy, which has become the fastest-growing national news network, delivering news and information to younger audiences across platforms.
