Stephen Reverand has come back to Discovery Channel as senior VP of development and production for specials and events. Reverand replaces interim head Christine Weber, who will work with Reverand as VP of the department. Most recently, Reverand was senior VP of specials at National Geographic Channel, and prior to that, Reverand oversaw the production of series, specials, and documentaries for Discovery Channel as VP of production. ‘Stephen is one of the best non-fiction production executives in the business,’ said Clark Bunting, president and general manager of Discovery Channel and president of Science Channel. ‘He intrinsically understands the Discovery brand and delivers on delicate balance of finding fascinating topics to engage our viewers while creating content in the most compelling way. I am delighted to be working with him again on the flagship channel.’
