The Learning Channel executive Roger Marmet is officially taking the reins of the Discovery
Networks U.S. cable channel.
Marmet, now senior vice president and general manager, had been serving as
acting GM since April 2002, when former chief Jana Bennett defected to a job at
the British Broadcasting Corp.
Marmet, a 10-year TLC veteran, had been VP of programming
and, before that, VP of advertising and promotion.
