John F. Lansing is retiring after nine years as head of the company’s Scripps Networks operating division. He will continue his association with the company on a consulting basis for an extended period of time.

Succeeding Lansing as president of the Scripps Networks operating division will be Burton Jablin, a 19-year veteran of the company who was instrumental in the launch, early development and long-term growth of HGTV. Jablin has been leading the company’s home category, which includes HGTV, DIY Network, their associated websites and all of the company’s other businesses focused on the home.

Succeeding Jablin as president of the home category will be Kathleen Finch, who has been serving as senior vice president and general manager of HGTV and DIY Network. Finch has been credited for providing the leadership and creative programming expertise behind the recent audience growth at HGTV and DIY Network, both of which have been setting all-time viewership records.

In addition to HGTV and DIY Network, the Scripps Networks operating division includes Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, Great American Country, and their related businesses.

“This company and its many stakeholders owe John Lansing a debt of gratitude for his inspired leadership and for guiding Scripps Networks through an astonishing period of growth and accomplishment,” said Kenneth W. Lowe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Scripps Networks Interactive. “It’s to John’s credit that Scripps Networks today is one of the industry’s shining stars, having defined lifestyle media as a content genre for television and the growing array of interactive media platforms. Under John’s able stewardship, Scripps Networks has established for itself a sturdy competitive advantage in the home, food and travel content categories.”
