Kathleen Finch
Chief programming, content and brand officer
Scripps Networks Interactive
 
Finch was promoted in August to an uber-post overseeing content for Scripps’ half-dozen cablers: Food Network, Cooking Channel, HGTV, DIY, Travel Channel and Great American Country.
 
HGTV and DIY have thrived on her watch in recent years, which meant her elevation was no surprise. Her focus now is harnessing the collective strength of Scripps’ lifestyle brands. “There is strength in numbers,” Finch says. Admirers say she’s got the marketing and programming chops to lead the company to new heights.
