Michalchyshyn Expected to Get Planet Green Post

Feb 25, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Discovery Communications is expected to name Laura Michalchyshyn to run its Planet Green network, said sources familiar with the situation.
Ms. Michalchyshyn currently is general manager of Sundance Channel, which was acquired by Cablevision’s Rainbow Media last year.
She would replace Eileen O’Neill, who was named president of Discovery’s struggling TLC last year.
Planet Green was operating as part of Discovery’s Emerging Networks unit. Hiring a dedicated manager is a sign that Discovery is committed to the channel.
Discovery representatives had no comment. Ms. Michalchyshyn did not return a call to her office.
During Discovery Communications’ fourth-quarter earnings conference call Wednesday morning, CEO David Zaslav said a new president for Planet Green was about to be named. “She’s very strong,” he added.
