Johnson to focus on p'gramming, new business dev't

Food Network has tapped Brooke Johnson as prexy.

Johnson replaces Judy Girard, who is transitioning full-time to her post as prexy of Scripps Networks’ new Shop at Home Network.

In her new post Johnson will focus on programming and new business development as well as managing Food Network’s relationships with other Scripps Network brands.

“Judy Girard and the team she assembled are responsible for transforming Food Network from a ‘stand and stir’ channel to one of the hottest networks in television,” said Scripps Networks exec VP John Lansing.

Johnson joined Food Network in May 2003 as senior VP and general manager.

She previously held posts at A&E, where she helped guide the net from a .5 rating to a 1.5 rating.

Johnson also proposed the original concept for History Channel and crafted the net’s programming strategy.
