TLC Taps Discovery's Nancy Daniels as General Manager
Previously evp of production and development at the corporate sibling, the exec will now oversee the female-targeted cable network.
Just a week after Amy Winter stepped down as general manager of TLC, the cable network has named her successor.
Discovery Channel's Nancy Daniels will make the move to the sister network, where she will oversee all aspects of programming, production, development, new media and marketing for Discovery Communications’ female-targeted net.
“Nancy is a talented creative executive, a motivating team leader, and a risk-taking problem solver, with a track record of success that makes her a perfect fit to lead the TLC brand forward,” said Discovery and TLC Networks group president Eileen O’Neill, to whom Daniels will report directly. “Her previous success at TLC, combined with her leadership roles at both Discovery Channel and Discovery Fit & Health, gives her the ability to jump right in and continue TLC’s growth and pop culture domination.”
