NEW YORK (November 3, 2016) – Christine Shuler has joined Travel Channel as director of programming. For the past year, as a consultant for the network, she lent her vast storytelling talents and passion for entertaining television to such popular series as “Booze Traveler,” “Food Paradise” and the upcoming “Alaska: Water and Ice.” Based in New York, Shuler will report directly to Neil Regan, vice president, programming, at the network.
Prior to joining the Travel Channel team, Shuler served as a production executive, creating historical, popular culture, educational and reality programming for A&E Networks, Discovery Communications, PBS and Chicago Public Radio.
