Scout.com is an integrated sports publishing company consisting of two separate divisions that work closely together to deliver a unique and highly integrated Internet and print product offering. The Internet publishing division consists of a network of more than 200 web sites that publish inside and exclusive content focusing on College, NFL, MLB, High School and other professional team sports. The network is managed with Scout’s proprietary Camelot publishing technology that allows publishers to rapidly write, cross-reference, distribute and syndicate stories and information about sports from anywhere in the world. Scout Publishing is the Company’s print publishing division. It produces 40 of the most widely read independent college and professional team focused magazines in the country. Scout Publishing magazines utilize the content and audience of Scout.com to develop, promote and market its editorially rich, high quality, “glossy” monthly magazines. Together, print and Internet publications complement one another enabling each to offer a broad selection of extremely high quality sports related information. Scout directly provides more than 2.1 million people with content, while syndicating 1,100 pieces of content daily, making Scout the most read independent sports publisher in the country.
In 2005, Scout was acquired by Fox Interactive Company, now the highest-traffic Internet property in the world, comprised of Scout.com, FoxSports.com, MySpace.com, IGN.com, WhatIf Sports, PhotoBucket.com and other leading properties.
