Welcome to theSkimm!

We are an online newsletter that simplifies the headlines for the professional who knows enough to know she needs more. Our concept is simple: we read, you Skimm.

After developing careers as producers in network and cable news, we realized three things: Reading the news is time consuming; Wanting to read the news is a hobby; Lastly, not everyone has the time or interest.

You don’t want to be the one caught uninformed in a professional or social setting. Cue theSkimm.

News is not only our career, it’s our passion. Because of this, we have always been the go-to source for friends seeking the scoop on current events or breaking news.

This is a service everyone needs. You may follow the ‘right’ people on Twitter or get the ‘right’ breaking news alerts but with so much noise, it’s hard to filter what you need to know in politics, international affairs, sports, entertainment, technology etc.

theSkimm is your filter. We cross party and subject lines to break down what it seems everyone else is talking about.

theSkimm is more than just a newsletter. We are a survival guide.  With daily fresh editorial content, we seek to give you what you need to know and why you need to know it, so that you can walk into that date, meeting, job interview, family dinner, or girl’s night out with confidence.

It’s time for you to be the conversation starter. All you need to do is Skimm.
