Who We Are

World News & World Report is a multifaceted digital media company dedicated to helping consumers, business leaders and policy officials make important life decisions. We use world-class data and technology to publish independent reporting, rankings, journalism, and advice that has earned the trust of our readers and users for nearly 90 years. Our platforms on include Education, Health, Money, Travel, Cars, News, and 360 Reviews.

We reach more than 40 million people monthly during moments when they are most in need of expert advice and are motivated to act on that advice directly on our platforms. Our signature franchises include our “Best” series of consumer guides on colleges, graduate schools, hospitals, diets, cars, financial services, and more. These guides provide an easy-to-digest list for consumers to understand better and compare when making their decisions. We continue to publish annual guides of the authoritative Best Colleges and Best Hospitals rankings on our website and in print. And our U.S. News Live flagship conferences highlight important national conversations including Healthcare of Tomorrow and Healthiest Communities.

We are proud to be one of the first legacy media brands to transform into a purely digital model nearly a dozen years ago. Our diversified business model engages consumers at every point in their decision-making journey and allows our corporate partners to use brand advertising, performance marketing, e-commerce, brand recognition, and thought-leadership programs to achieve their business objectives.
