KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – October 15, 2015 — Scripps Networks Interactive has named Henry Ahn as President, Content Distribution & Marketing. Ahn, who was previously Executive Vice President, will now oversee all aspects of distribution with both traditional linear partners and the rapidly increasing range of businesses seeking high-quality digital content.
