Imagine the first sip of morning coffee (or tea) in your office as people are settling in for the work day.
Now, think about what you can do as you drink that elixir to start firing those neurons before a busy day. Where do you get your daily scoop of what’s happening in the world?
There are a lot of apps, podcasts, and sources you can turn to, but it’s hard to gather everything you might want to know.
Well, fear not. Here is our list of the top five best news sites to stay informed.
You might have heard your co-workers already talking about this fun, daily newsletter. It was started by two former (re: recovering) journalists who provide a quick, witty digest of national, international and pop culture news every morning. They also provide Skimm Guides that dive deeper into hot topics like the health care debate. And you can win prizes if you become a Skimm’bassador and help spread the word about them to your friends.
This is one of our team’s favorite newsletters to read in the morning – because who doesn’t want their news delivered with a side of sass? Sign up here.
Our team likes Axios because it delivers trustworthy news in an efficient, no-BS kind of way. They cover everything from media trends to business to technology to politics.
The best part? Their articles provide insightful analyses with brevity. It’s everything you need to know for work and the water cooler, backed by solid reporting and journalism without a left or right lean. Sign up here.
For the political junkies, this newsletter by OZY will give you the rundown on Capitol Hill. From how Trump’s latest tweet will influence foreign relations to the effects climate change will have on the country, it provides in-depth reporting on not just “what is happening, but where the world is heading.”
One of the features our team enjoys most about this site is the top banner of the page, which lists “Important” articles you should read first. That way, if you’re crunched for time, you can consume the most relevant information immediately and save the rest for later. Sign up here.
Similar to The Skimm, this is another light-hearted newsletter that gives the low-down on the information you “need to know” (get it?) from politics to sports and entertainment.
They provide a more comprehensive and high-level overview on the news, and our team enjoys their section “Love, Hate, and Ate,” where they review one thing they loved, one thing they hated and one thing they ate. Because…why not? Sign up here.
This is one of the best news sites to read in the morning to get the dish on the business world. While many of us check our LinkedIn profiles on a semi-regular basis, the company has done a great job giving users a reason to engage with their platform on a daily basis – this being one of the main values.
Available on the site and the app, the Daily Rundown provides a quick digest of what the world’s most influential companies are doing and how these big moves affect others, as well as business best practices. Sign up here.
