Discovery Inc.

David
Leavy

Chief Corporate Operating Officer

Leavy was a driving force in Discovery’s January 2021 rollout of its VOD platform Discovery+, and given how the transition to streaming is a top priority for legacy media companies, it bodes well for his future as the unscripted TV giant merges with spun-off AT&T asset WarnerMedia. It also doesn’t hurt that he is part of the inner circle of Discovery CEO David Zaslav, who has been tapped to run the new entity, dubbed Warner Bros. Discovery. A 21-year veteran of Discovery, he was a key player in the company’s public listing on NASDAQ in 2008, its acquisition of Scripps Interactive in 2018, its strategic partnership with Group Nine Media and, more recently, the fight to stop Poland from banning it from owning the independent Polish TV network TVN.
