Cooking Channel – Looking Back, Looking Ahead

Cooking Channel Michael Smith

Michael Smith, our illustrious leader and SVP / General Manager of Cooking Channel, shares some recent thoughts on the past year-plus here at Cooking Channel.

Hello, we really appreciate the visit.  Thanks to you and so many other passionate food lovers, Cooking Channel has exceeded even our wildest expectations for success.  We’re just wrapping up our first full year on the air and already each month more than 15 million people tune in to Cooking Channel and a million more visit CookingChannelTV.com for a deeper dive into all things food.

Earlier this fall I ventured from my New York City apartment for a Saturday afternoon bike ride over the Williamsburg Bridge to check out Smorgasburg, the hot new open-air, all-food, bonanza held Saturdays on Brooklyn’s Williamsburg waterfront.  The New York Times calls it “like a summer rock festival for food” and “a fitting playland for a food-crazy generation.”

It reminded me a lot of what we hope to give you every day on Cooking Channel.  We’re so proud to offer the most diverse lineup of food programming on television.  Where else will find shows all about Vietnamese, Caribbean or Indian food, or an entire series dedicated to cheese?  Or an irreverent food comedy show like Nadia G’s Bitchin Kitchen?  When you watch Cooking Channel, we promise you’ll never quite look at food the same way again.

The Williamsburg Smorgasburg closes November 19th for winter, but Cooking Channel’s smorgasbord is open year-round, 24-hour a day, on-air and online.
