Scripps, the cable-TV, newspaper, and Web conglomerate, will split into two publicly traded companies, its board announced today. Scripps Networks Interactive gets the growing cable-TV channels, including HGTV, and all the Internet properties. E. W. Scripps gets stuck with 10 broadcast television stations and newspapers in 17 U.S. markets. The lucky Kenneth Lowe, Scripps' current CEO, will keep running Scripps Networks. And in the worst loss ever recorded for a rock-paper-scissors game, Richard Boehne gets to helm the company slated to be destroyed by YouTube and Craigslist. (Photo by neurmadic aesthetic)
