TEGNA. That’s the name of Gannett’s newly formed broadcast and digital company.

Gannett is splitting into two publicly traded companies. One is TEGNA. The other will keep the name Gannett and will focus on publishing.

“TEGNA is a nod to the more than 100 year-old history of Gannett. While always reminding us where we came from, the new name also shows our innovative spirit and commitment to being a forward-looking company that empowers people, businesses and communities to grow and thrive,” said Gracia Martore, Gannett president and CEO.

 TEGNA includes 46 TV stations, reaching approximately one-third of all TV households in the U.S. On the digital side, TEGNA is made up of cars.com and CareerBuilder.com.
