One Word that Best Describes Me: Respectful

Steinlauf is responsible for managing the ad sales division for all Scripps brands as well as convergent revenue, research, inventory control and branded entertainment. Stephens, Grinthal, and Regis each oversee sales strategies and convergent revenue for the company’s home, food and travel categories, respectively. Together, they soar. In the year ahead, Jon and his team will emphasize adding more mobile and social elements to multi-platform client solutions. Data will also be key as Steinlauf works to customize advertising schedules as a way to make Scripps Networks’ content an even more attractive destination for ad partners.
