Scripps TV unit to relocate HQ to Knoxville

Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. has picked Knoxville as its official headquarters, in effect recognizing the city that already has the largest chunk of the company's operations.
That includes operations for the HGTV and DIY networks. About 850 of the company's 1,950 employees work in Knoxville.

The company previously was based in Cincinnati, but the move won't mean much in terms of added employment. Top executives will continue to maintain dual offices in Cincinnati and Knoxville. In March, Scripps opened a 150,000-square-foot building on the west side of Knoxville, consolidating operations that had been scattered among three buildings. About 40 people work for the company at the Great American Country (GAC) network in Nashville.

E.W. Scripps continues to be based in Cincinnati.
