Veteran Discovery Networks exec Bill McGowan has been upped to exec VP of advertising sales.
McGowan, who was most recently senior VP, ad sales, oversees the company’s sales in New York, as well as the activities of its regional offices in Chicago, Detroit and Los Angeles.
Under his leadership, McGowan’s sales teams are responsible for ad sales for Discovery Networks’ on-air services and Discovery Online Network.
“Discovery’s tremendous growth and expansion is in no small part due to Bill and his team’s success,” said Discovery Networks prexy Johnathan Rodgers.
Prior to joining Discovery in May 1991, McGowan was VP, sales and operations, for the Fox Television Stations.
