"Scripps Networks Seen Luring Disney as Trust Disbands: Real M&A"

The Scripps family trust is disbanding, and their Networks (FN, Travel etc) might be up for sale.

Despite all the complaints here about FN content, it looks like the network is pretty valuable, and has good growth potential.

The Eater has fun imagining FN additions to Disneyworld

"Just imagine the theme park possibilities: Paula Deen's Butter Slide, Guy Fieri's Kool Spinning Kups, Sandra Lee's Semiscary Semihaunted House.."

    Everything on this planet is for sale with the possible exception of true love.
