Scripps Networks Interactive has announced that Chairman, President & CEO Kenneth W. Lowe will be appointed to the role of Chair of the Supervisory Board of TVN, the Warsaw-based, multi-platform media company that was acquired by Scripps Networks in July 2015.
In a parallel move, President of Scripps Networks International Jim Samples, who has been leading TVN since July 2016, has been appointed President of TVN’s management board with day-to-day oversight of the company. Samples, who has been leading TVN on an interim basis since July 2016, will continue as President of Scripps Networks Interactive’s international operations.
Lowe commented: “Under the ownership of Scripps Networks Interactive, TVN has gone from strength to strength in the last eighteen months, across the full range of entertainment, news and lifestyle networks. The company is central to our plans to grow our business outside the United States, and I am looking forward to working even more closely with the supervisory board as we look to achieve that.”
