Scripps Unloads Part of Shop At Home


Jewelry Television cut a deal to buy some of the assets of E.W. Scripps failed Shop At Home network for $17 million.

The deal includes studio and other facilities plus the network’s trademark but excludes the five TV stations Scripps picked up when paying $285 million for the network in two stages since 2002. Jewelry Television (formerly known as America’s Collectibles Network) is based in Knoxville, Tenn., and says it generated $390 million in revenues last year.
