Crime continues to pay for Bennett. In another tough year for linear viewership, ID continued to buck trends based largely on Bennett’s mantra: Stay predictable and stick to your knitting. This directive provided ID with a top spot on the dial for W25-54 – resting at No. 1 for total day in 2017; and #2 for A25-54. Look for another measure of its success in a new syndicated series debuting this fall. Latman led the development of the true-crime, mystery and suspense programming that kept ID at the top of its game and Destination America a force to be reckoned with, before being named GM of Travel Channel in April.
