PR Newswire

CINCINNATI, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheryle Harrison has been appointed the head of Bounce, the nation's popular entertainment television network serving African Americans.

Harrison has served in various roles at Bounce since it was launched in 2011 as the first Katz network. She will now be responsible for the overall strategic vision for Bounce, including brand strategy, programing, marketing, social media, digital and community relations. She is based in Atlanta and reports to Lisa Knutson, president of Scripps Networks.

"Cheryle has been a driving force in Bounce's development, growth and success since its beginning," Knutson said.

"Our goal is that Bounce will become the meeting ground for Black culture, communities and creators building the most valued Black media brand in the world, and for the world, with authenticity and purpose," Harrison said. "I'm excited to lead Bounce into the future."
