Discovery Networks Europe has appointed Elizabeth Healey to the new

post of press and publicity manager.



Healey will run a team of five press officers and report directly to

Virginia Lee, director of corporate communications.



Lee said the rapid growth of the channel - there are now eight brands -

was behind the appointment. Digital, niche strands have recently joined

its existing analogue service Discovery Channel Europe. A new brand,

Discovery Health, will be launched in June, with an on-line service to

follow.



Healey, who was previously PR manager at business news channel CNBC

Europe, will have responsibility for broadening Discovery’s audience of

journalists across all media in the EMEA region.



Lee said that Discovery has no retained agencies and no plans to start

hiring. The in-house PR team also has responsibility for listings and

event management.



Launched in 1989, Discovery has 20 million subscribers.
