Craftsman(R) Tools: Now the Official Tools of DIY Network


    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today, the Official Tools
of NASCAR also became the Official Tools of DIY Network, the go-to media
resource for do-it-yourself enthusiasts. Executives from Sears announced
the agreement for Craftsman, America's most trusted brand, at the
International Builders' Show with representatives of Scripps Networks-owned
DIY Network.

    The agreement will include the development of a customized show
strategy specifically for Craftsman, which has the option to send product
to be integrated within DIY Network programming.

    "At its core, the Craftsman brand inspires trust," said Erik
Rosenstrauch, brand director for Craftsman. "Craftsman has the right tool
for the job, regardless of people's skill level or complexity of the
project. And what better place to demonstrate the potential that Craftsman
enables than the network that DIYers rely on to be inspired?" According to
Rosenstrauch, the reciprocal sponsorship agreement is tied to both hand and
power tools as well as lawn and garden equipment, and will be communicated
via television, radio, online, print ads, direct mail, in-store and product
packaging.

    "This innovative agreement aligns two highly-trusted brands with a
shared commitment to empower and engage do-it-yourself enthusiasts," said
Bob Baskerville, DIY Network president. "DIY Network's expertise in home
improvement content coupled with Craftsman's best-of-breed tools delivers
value for everyone from the novice to the most advanced DIYer."

    DIY Network is seen in 50 million households and its Web site attracts
more than 2.5 million unique visitors each month. The announcement came at
the International Builders' Show, where the Craftsman brand showcased
several new products, including prototypes of its award-winning Nextec
line.
