Ahn Named Distribution President at Scripps Nets

Henry Ahn was named president, content distribution & marketing at Scripps Networks Interactive.

Ahn, who had been executive VP, will oversee all aspects of distribution with both traditional linear partners as well as other businesses seeking high-quality digital content.

Ahn, who joined Scripps Networks Interactive from NBCUniversal in 2011, reports to Steve Gigliotti, chief revenue officer of Scripps.

“Henry is one of the most outstanding executives working in the content distribution space today,” said Gigliotti. “His knowledge and resolve have been essential to the successful renegotiation of major distribution contracts with key cable and satellite platforms, and he has been instrumental in ensuring that our brands have become must-haves among emerging non-traditional distribution services.”

He focuses on revenue-generating activities, including advertising and distribution, as well as executive intrigue and merger and acquisition activity. Just about any story is fair game, if a dollar sign can make its way into the article. Before B+C, Jon covered the industry for TVWeek, Cable World, Electronic Media, Advertising Age and The New York Post. A native New Yorker, Jon is hiding in plain sight in the suburbs of Chicago.
