Starting in January, Rogers will be the home of Warner Bros. Discovery’s English-language U.S. lifestyle brands, including HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Magnolia Network and OWN — currently held by Corus — and Discovery, Motor Trend, Science, Animal Planet and I.D., currently held by Bell. The news comes after Corus revealed a fall/winter lineup last week that added Pamela Anderson’s “Pamela’s Cookin’ With Love” to Food Network Canada and Bryan Baeumler’s “Building Baeumler” to HGTV Canada. New seasons from HGTV Canada personalities Sebastian Clovis, Scott McGillivray, Debra Salmoni and Randy Spracklin were also announced. Troy Reeb, Corus’ executive vice president of networks and content, said programming and brands on several of the lifestyle properties acquired by Rogers are “anticipated to be impacted” in the new year. He added that Corus’ rights to Adult Swim and Cartoon Network won’t be affected. Corus announced last week that it had been informed by Warner Bros. Discovery that some of its programming and trademark arrangements would not be renewed when they expire at the end of the year.
