Cooking a plan for Fine Living

October 13, 2009|Associated Press

Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. is turning Fine Living into the Cooking Channel and moving the cable network from the hills of Tennessee to New York City's food-oriented Chelsea Market. The revamped channel will launch in third quarter of 2010.

About 20 jobs will be lost at Scripps' 1,000-employee headquarters in Knoxville, though Scripps hopes to find other positions for those workers locally.

Scripps Networks created Fine Living in 2002. The channel reaches 55 million households but hasn't grown as fast as its Knoxville-based sister networks HGTV and DIY Network, both geared to all things about homes.

In New York, the rebranded Cooking Channel will be paired with Scripps' successful acquisition, The Food Network, in studios the company already owns there.
