You probably know Silver Spring, Maryland is home of Discovery Communications. Did you know Discovery’s headquarters are considered to be one of the THE landmarks there? Yep, it’s true. This DC suburb is home to DC, which has news- the appointment of CLARK BUNTING to be President of the newly created Emerging Networks group, reporting to CEO DAVID ZASLAV. Clark is a 22-year vet of DC who came up with Shark Week, which has done wonders for them. He’ll be dealing with the programming, marketing, scheduling, development and online efforts for Science Channel, Investigation Discovery (ID), and Military Channel, giving up being President of Discovery Studios. Taking his old job is CAROLE TOMKO. Carole’s new title is in addition to her duties as GM of Discovery Health Channel, FitTV and Discovery Kids Channel. She’ll report to Discovery COO MARK HOLLINGER. Great to hear, everybody.
While we’re talking Silver Spring, got more info from Discovery. They’re named DARIN PRILL Senior Vice President, Architecture and Development, reporting to Chief Information Officer, DAVID KLINE. No, it’s not building architecture…it’s all about IT. Darin holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from SUNY Excelsior College. Super.
