Last Updated on: March 8th, 2023

theskimm statistics user count facts 2023TheSkimm is a digital media company that delivers daily email newsletters covering current events and lifestyle topics in a conversational and easy-to-understand manner. It was founded in 2012 by Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, two former NBC News producers who saw a need for a quick and easy way for millennial women to stay informed about the news.

TheSkimm’s newsletters provide a curated selection of top news stories, often with a humorous or irreverent tone, along with recommendations for books, podcasts, and other lifestyle content. The company has expanded beyond its flagship newsletter to include a podcast, an app, and a membership program that offers exclusive content and perks.

TheSkimm has been praised for its ability to engage younger audiences in the news and politics, and has been credited with helping to increase civic engagement among its subscribers. The company has also faced criticism for its oversimplification of complex issues and for its lack of diversity in its content and staff.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these theSkimm statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
