Discovery CEO David Zaslav to Be Nominated to Televisa Board

Lionsgate chief Jon Feltheimer also will be nominated to Televisa's board of directors at an upcoming shareholders' meeting.

Mexican media outfit Televisa on Monday announced that Discovery CEO David Zaslav will be nominated to join its board of directors at a shareholders' meeting April 29.

The announcement comes a week after Televisa said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer will be nominated to fill one of two available board seats.

Televisa, Mexico's top pay TV operator, carries Discovery channels across multiple cable and satellite TV platforms.

Lionsgate and Televisa have programming, distribution and development pacts in film and television.

As Televisa expands its global reach, the company is seeking a broader, international profile for its board.
