While some forecast bumpy roads for the television industry, Scripps continues to evolve and flourish under the leadership of this dynamic duo. Part of the original team that launched HGTV in 1994, Jablin was upped last August and has focused on international growth in his role overseeing sales, distribution, programming, digital and strategic planning, all priorities for Lowe. The Scripps ad sales team last year delivered a fourth consecutive upfront that surpassed the $1 billion mark in gross sales, and expanded its digital offerings as well as its Lifestyle Studio content.
