Eileen O’Neill, who had run Discovery Channel and TLC is leaving Discovery Communications after 25 years.
Last year, O’Neill was given a new assignment running Discovery’s studio operations. But at the end of last year, she took a long leave and decided not to return to the new post, the company confirmed.
In a memo to staff this morning, O’Neill said “I will miss you guys. Through incredible successes, and not a few nail-biting challenges, we always delivered as a team.”
