Scripps Board Elects Boehne As Chairman

CINCINNATI, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The E.W. Scripps Company's  (NYSE: SSP) board of directors today elected Rich Boehne as its new chairman. He succeeds Nackey E. Scagliotti, a great-granddaughter of founder Edward W. Scripps. She notified the board in February of her plans to retire as of the 2013 annual meeting following 14 years as a director and the final five years as the board's chair.

Boehne, 57, who started with the company as a teenager selling subscriptions to The Cincinnati Post, remains president, CEO and a director.

"On behalf of all of the owners, employees and customers of The E.W. Scripps Company, I want to thank Nackey Scagliotti for her leadership, wisdom, and rock-solid support of our mission to create value through enterprise journalism," Boehne said. "She has been the model of courage during a period of dramatic transition for Scripps, and she departs having played an essential role in our value-creation story."

At the company's annual meeting on May 1, shareholders elected the following directors in addition to Boehne:
  • Roger Ogden – retired president and CEO of Gannett Broadcasting. Director since 2008.
  • J. Marvin Quin – retired CFO of Ashland Inc. Director since 2009.
  • Kim Williams – retired senior vice president, partner and associate director of Global Industry Research at Wellington Management Company. Director since 2008.
  • John W. Hayden – retired CEO of The Midland Co. Director since 2008.
  • Anne M. La Dow – member of the Scripps family. Director since 2012.
  • Mary McCabe Peirce – member of the Scripps family. Director since 2008.
  • Paul K. Scripps – retired vice president of Scripps newspapers. Director since 1986.
  • Kelly P. Conlin - chairman and CEO of NameMedia. Shareholders elected him to the board for the first time.

"We're honored to welcome Kelly Conlin to our board. His voice, as a deeply experienced digital and media executive, will be critical as we continue the rapid buildout of our own digital businesses across the country," Boehne said.     

Conlin is a proven Internet and media CEO with expertise in online content and services as well as significant news industry leadership experience. After starting his career as a journalist at CNN, he made the switch to concentrate on the business side of the industry. He earned his M.B.A from Harvard Business School and started as an analyst for the New York Times Co. He has a strong track record of operating results in three different complex publishing/media/online companies: IDG, Primedia and now NameMedia.

With the CEO serving as chair, the board also selected Quin as lead director.
