The Mirror out of the United Kingdom has a new piece online featuring quotes from Dixie Carter. Below are the highlights:
Wanting more hours of television:
"When you see where we’re going today [with Destination America], we’ve already announced repeats and different versions of our show, that’s what we needed and that’s what I would not settle for less than in these negotiations."
Signing w/Destination America:
"Destination America isn’t as well known, but Discovery is as well known or better well known, not only in the United States but globally. That’s the reason we did the negotiations and the deal with them. This is bigger than just Destination America, it has global implications. We’re going to help grow Destination America domestically, that’s a huge priority for Discovery, and when that happens it’s going to have such a big upside for us on every level."
WWE taking talent from TNA:
"When you only have two leagues there’s only so many talent that you can find that are on a worldwide level. I think the tide has turned and WWE is taking our talent of late, not the reverse of that. It’s just the way it’s been."
