Discovery has hired Dee Forbes to run its UK business. Forbes joins from a fourteen-year stint at Turner where she ran its channels in the UK and Ireland. She will start in her new roles as managing director and executive vice-president in January. Reporting to Greg Ricca, CEO and president of Discovery Networks International, Forbes will have responsibility for Discovery’s 12 pay-TV channels and its long-awaited, as-yet-unnamed, free-to-air channel that will launch on the Freeview digital terrestrial service later this year.
The UK is the biggest earning territory for Discovery outside the US.
