Its television and digital businesses make the company one of the largest and most geographically diverse media companies in the US. TEGNA's two top digital properties are automotive-related site Cars.com and job site CareerBuilder. The company's media division includes more than 45 television stations making it the largest independent station group of major network affiliates in the top 25 markets.

TEGNA was formed in 2015 through a spin-off transaction which separated Gannett's publishing and broadcasting operations. The idea was too optimize profitability for each part of the previously larger single company.
