Jablonska will be charged with developing new business opportunities and managing the distribution of Scripps’ factual and lifestyle brands across the region, including Food Network, Travel Channel, Fine Living and HGTV. The latter channel is scheduled to launch across EMEA markets in November.

Based in London, Jablonska will report to Ross Hair, senior VP of commercial for the UK and EMEA.
