Gannett Broadcasting and Debmar-Mercury have named Stephanie Eno as vice president of development for their recently formed programming partnership. Dave Lougee, president of Gannett Broadcasting, made the announcement along with Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury.

In her new role Eno will search for projects with an interactive element and lead the partnership’s development efforts. She joins the companies from TLC, where she had served as executive producer and senior director of programming since 2011, with four years prior as director of programming. Eno played an integral role in the development of “Say Yes to the Dress” and “What Not to Wear,” as well as “How Do I Look?,” “The Look for Less” and other shows during her time as director of current series for The Style Network.

“We are excited to welcome Stephanie to lead this one-of-a-kind partnership between Gannett Broadcasting and Debmar-Mercury,” said Lougee. “Working together with the Debmar-Mercury team, we are well positioned to create innovative, truly interactive, quality first-run programming that can meet the needs of our stations across dayparts well into the future.”

Bernstein and Marcus added, “Stephanie’s diverse industry background in – and vast knowledge of – reality programming, development, physical production and the digital space makes her the ideal candidate to create the type of integrated programming we seek. She has earned a reputation as a highly creative collaborator who we believe can effectively execute on the vision we share with our great partners at Gannett.”
