Discovery Channel’s EVP of production and development, west, Nancy Daniels, has added Discovery Fit & Health to her remit, where she will serve as general manager.

She will continue to serve in her Discovery Channel role, and will also oversee all of the channel’s live events, as Discovery moves further into live event programming that supports its regular series.

In her new role, Daniels will oversee all operations for Discovery Fit & Health, including development and programming, and will work to give the network a new direction, according to group president of Discovery and TLC Networks, Eileen O’Neill, to whom Daniels continues to report.

“Nancy has a proven track record for sharp storytelling and recognizing compelling real-life characters,” said O’Neill. “When I want to reinvigorate a network, Nancy is my go-to. She has the skill and talent to strengthen and turn around a network, and I’m excited she’ll be taking on a leadership role with Discovery Fitness & Health. By placing this operation under her supervision, I can maximize her ability to give this network a new direction, as we did with both TLC and Discovery Channel.”
