Scripps Networks Interactive Names Chief Legal Officer

Cynthia L. Gibson, a member of the senior management team at Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. (NYSE: SNI) and an accomplished media attorney with more than 20 years of experience, has been named as the company’s chief legal officer and corporate secretary.

Gibson will succeed A.B. Cruz III, who announced last month that he is leaving the company to allow himself greater flexibility in his role as a rear admiral in the U.S. Navy Reserve. Gibson’s appointment as chief legal officer is effective immediately.

Since joining Scripps Networks Interactive in 2009 as a senior vice president, Gibson has provided legal counsel for the company’s media portfolio of leading lifestyle brands, which includes HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, DIY Network, Cooking Channel and country music network Great American Country. She subsequently was named an executive vice president of the company.

During her tenure at the company, she has provided leadership on a wide range of corporate and business legal issues, including governance, financial reporting, executive compensation, intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, content distribution and acquisition and new media, including the emerging field of social media law.

“Cynthia Gibson is an outstanding attorney who has made a significant contribution to the company’s remarkable growth in a highly competitive and ever-evolving media industry,” said Kenneth W. Lowe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Scripps Networks Interactive. “The company and all of its stakeholders have benefitted from her extensive knowledge and understanding of media law as well as her common sense, exceptionally strong leadership qualities and her commitment to helping Scripps Networks Interactive achieve its many business objectives.”

As chief legal officer and corporate secretary, Gibson will be responsible for coordinating and further developing the company’s legal, business affairs and audit departments as well as providing guidance and oversight for all of the company’s litigation, contractual, governance and regulatory obligations. Based in Knoxville, she will report to Lowe.
