Discovery Channel Celebrates Twenty Years in Latin America

Discovery Latin America - 20th Anniversary Celebration

Editor’s Note: In 2014, Discovery Networks International (DNI) will celebrate its 25th anniversary. DNI first launched outside the United States in 1989 in the UK and Scandinavia, and in 1989, in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Throughout the year, we will spotlight the global festivities of this great milestone in our company’s history, sharing with you a bit of the local flavor and flair from some of our 59 international offices along the way.

On Friday, the Miami office celebrated the 20th anniversary of Discovery Channel’s launch in the Latin American markets with festive food and vintage items from Discovery’s past, kicking off a year of celebrations in the region.

Since its launch, Discovery Communications has grown to include a portfolio of 11 channels in Latin America and two more for the US Hispanic market. The celebrations also recognized President and Managing Director, Enrique Martinez, who has been with Discovery for twenty years.
