Welcoming Oprah to Silver Spring

Oprah Winfrey Addresses Discovery Employees
Oprah Winfrey Addresses Discovery Employees

One of the perks of working at Discovery is getting to hear from and meet amazing guests — from Bear Grylls to the Duggars. However, in my 11+ years at the company, I’ve never witnessed the level of excitement One Discovery Place experienced today. The catalyst? OWN CEO Oprah Winfrey and network presidents Sheri Salata and Erik Logan.

Joined by Discovery President & CEO David Zaslav, Winfrey spoke to a crowd that gathered in our Silver Spring headquarters’ atrium (and on every floor overlooking it), sharing her one-of-a-kind brand of insight and inspiration…and taking questions from giddy employees.

Thank you to Oprah, Sheri and Erik for stopping by, and congratulations to Oprah on receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom this week!
