Discovery Communications President & CEO David Zaslav To Present Keynote Address At MIPTV

PARIS, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  MIPTV announces today that David Zaslav, President & CEO of Discovery Communications, will present a keynote address on Tuesday 9 April, as part of MIPTV's Media Mastermind keynotes series. Organised by Reed MIDEM, MIPTV will take place in Cannes from 8-11 April, 2013.

David Zaslav sets the strategy and oversees all operations of the world's #1 nonfiction media company that reaches more than 1.8 billion cumulative subscribers in nearly 220 countries and territories. Discovery Communications is dedicated to igniting curiosity and delivering the thrill of discovery through more than 150 worldwide television networks and a leading portfolio of digital media properties that attract approximately 25 million unique visitors per month.

At MIPTV, David Zaslav will discuss the global content environment, recent international M&A activity and his strategy for continued growth at the world's largest pay-TV programmer.

Prior to Discovery, Zaslav had a distinguished career at NBC Universal. In 2007, he received a Trustees Award for Lifetime Achievement from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). In 2009, he was honored by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) with its Forces for Nature award for his vision and leadership in driving Discovery's ongoing commitment to embracing "green" as a corporate value and developing the highest quality programming that celebrates the wonders of our planet for audiences around the world.

Under David Zaslav's leadership, in September 2008, Discovery began trading as a public company on the Nasdaq stock exchange and has since delivered average double-digit profit growth over the past five years.
