Scripps re-ups Rachael Ray


Scripps Networks has nailed down Food Network star Rachael Ray for an additional two years. She’ll do 60 more episodes of her daytime show, “30 Minute Meals,” plus a new primetime series launching next month. “Rachael’s Vacation,” premiering January 12 at 9:00 pm ET/PT, follows Rachael ray as she takes time to sneak away and have a vacation, albeit with a camera crew in tow. Viewers will follow as she discovers the distant cities, countries, foods, and lifestyles that continue to amaze and excite her.

"Rachael is the quintessential example of the homegrown stars we create at Food Network. She has been with us since 2001 and we have built a strong partnership that will continue for years to come and bring more new and exciting projects," said Brooke Johnson, President, Food Network.
