Newsy, Bellingcat nominated for National Emmy Award

Newsy and the investigative journalism outlet Bellingcat have been nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy® Award for “outstanding new approaches: current news,” alongside The New York Times and Univision.

The 41st Annual News & Documentary Emmy® Awards honor content from more than 2000 submissions that originally premiered in calendar-year 2019, judged by a pool of 875 peer professionals from across the television and streaming/digital media industry. Newsy was previously nominated in 2016 and 2019.

The Newsy+Bellingcat newsroom collaboration pairs Newsy’s creative visual storytelling and reporting with Bellingcat’s innovative approach to using publicly available data and citizen journalist analysis. For the video series, reporters work together to utilize satellite imagery, social media and online tools to shed light on international conflict and extremism — from showing how tear gas canisters have killed protesters in Iraq to finding white supremacists in the ranks of the U.S. military.

Recent reports from the Newsy+Bellingcat series revealed:

Nominations were announced Thursday by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and will be presented in September. The Newsy+Bellingcat series is also the winner of the 2020 Scripps Howard Award for Innovation.

Newsy is a wholly owned subsidiary of The E.W. Scripps Company (NASDAQ: SSP).
