Compelling programming has always been the foundation of Scripps Networks Interactive’s success. Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer who loves home projects, an avid food fan or a world traveler, our portfolio of networks always has something to pique—and then keep—your interest.

This relentless focus on creating high quality content paid dividends when finalists for the upcoming Cablefax Program Awards were announced today, with HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel and Cooking Channel garnering a combined 27 finalist nods across 13 different categories. From the return of the legendary Iron Chef series with Food Network’s Iron Chef Gauntlet to the emergence of breakout hits like HGTV’s Home Town and the continued popularity of Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown, there’s been plenty of programming success to celebrate for Scripps Networks in 2017. The experts at Cablefax clearly agree!
