Discovery’s Zaslav to give MIPTV keynote

Discovery Communications’ president and CEO David Zaslav will give a keynote address at MIPTV in April.

The Discovery boss will speak at the market as part of the MIPTV’s organiser’s Media Mastermind series.
He will discuss the global content environment, recent international M&A activity including acquisitions of the SBS Nordic channels and a chunk of Eurosport, and his strategy for continued growth at Discovery.

Zaslav joined Discovery from NBC in 2007. The company has listed on the Nasdaq exchange and has launched channels including OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network during his tenure.

The international business has grown strongly through that period.
