Two media giants to battle over Travel Ch?
Rup//ert Mur//doch’s News Corp and Scripps Networks are reportedly both bidding enthusiastically for the Travel Channel (the US-based service, and not to be confused with the European ‘Travel’ channel).
Cox Communications of Atlanta owns the Travel Channel, and reportedly bids are coming in at around the US$800m mark.
Chase Carey, News Corp’s COO, is on record as saying that Travel Channel would made a sensible fit alongside its Nat-Geo channels.
