Discovery Moving National Operating HQ to Knoxville

We got some great news today. We are not losing Scripps Interactive after their merger with Discovery. Rather Knoxville will become the new national operations HQ for the Discovery Network.

Discovery press release...

"National Operations Headquarters in Knoxville

Following an in-depth financial and operational analysis, and based on the strengths, capabilities and advantages of the current Scripps Knoxville campus, the facility will become Discovery’s National Operations Headquarters pending closure of the transaction.

Featuring a compelling environment and infrastructure, Knoxville is a self-contained campus with many amenities and benefits for a National Operations Headquarters, including a low cost of living, and built-in facilities and operational capabilities. It will continue to house the major Scripps brands and creative digital teams along with corporate functions."
