Who Knew? (Yahoo!)
Who Knew? is a daily short-form news series sponsored by Toyota and produced for Yahoo! News (also available on Yahoo! Screen, the Yahoo! screen app, and Yahoo! social media platforms) that presents audiences with fun facts and trivia tied to current events.
Who Knew? is now in Season 5 with over 900 episodes produced to date and is one of the longest-running shows on Yahoo!. In each ninety second episode, the show takes a current event, topic, or news story and finds the special “Who Knew?” moment to share with the audience – something you don’t always get from traditional news. The Who Knew? production team creates accompanying quizzes and polls to further engage the viewer with Who Knew?content, and the show has its own Twitter and Facebook (grown to over 54,000 followers) to encourage dialogue with its very active fans. Shine America, Yahoo!, and Toyota work together to keep the series fresh and engaging by constantly evolving creative, social media, and mobile opportunities.
One of the longest-running original web series, Who Knew? celebrated its 800th episode in 2013.
