The article deals with the decision of media conglomerate E.W.Scripps to separate its print properties from faster-growing businesses. A group of national cable networks and online properties like the Food Network and uSwitch.com will be spun off into the Scripps Networks Interactive, while its newspapers and local television stations will remain under the current corporate group. Investors pushed up shares of E.W. Scripps 7.3 percent, following the announcement of the planned segregation. Scripps Interactive Networks will include HGTV, Food Network, DIY Network, the Fine Living Television Network, Great American Country and their online businesses, as well as shopping search engine Shopzilla and uSwitch.
