Scripps Networks Interactive Promotes Dylan Jones to Chief Communications Officer

Scripps Networks Interactive has promoted Dylan Jones to exec VP and chief communications officer, reporting to CEO Kenneth Lowe.

Jones succeeds Mark Kroeger, a 37-year Scripps vet who has been head of corporate PR since 2013. Kroeger will remain a senior adviser to Lowe.

Jones’ “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,” Lowe said.

SNI has been the subject of persistent takeover talk in recent years as the company has a small but valuable cluster of lifestyle-oriented cable networks including Food Network, HGTV, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and DIY.

Jones joined SNI last year after running his own PR consulting firm and serving as a senior exec at EMI Group.
