Jones Named Head of Communications for Scripps

Scripps Networks Interactive named Dylan Jones as executive VP and chief communications officer.

Jones, who had been senior VP of corporate communications, succeeds Mark Kroeger, who held the post since 2013 and will serve as senior advisor to CEO Ken Lowe. In his new role, Jones will oversee public and media relations, investor relations, internal communications, creative services, customer service and event marketing.

“Since joining Scripps Networks Interactive more than a year ago, Dylan Jones has proven to be a valuable and respected member of our senior leadership team,” said Lowe, to whom Jones will report. “He has seamlessly taken the reins and has been instrumental in shaping the company’s global communications strategies. His broad experience of the media sector and know-how as a professional communicator will be instrumental as we position Scripps Networks for growth and competitive advantage in this fast-evolving marketplace.”

Jones joined Scripps Networks in 2014 from EMI Group. He also worked for MTV and VH1 in London.

Jon has been business editor of Broadcasting+Cable since 2010. 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.
