Martinez has reason to celebrate. This year marks his 20th anniversary at Discovery, and it also happens to be the 20th anniversary of Discovery in Latin America. The DLA/USH portfolio is thriving. Discovery has been the No. 1 factual network 12 years running, Discovery Kids is a top preschool network and Discovery Home & Health is the No. 1 lifestyle network, pan-regionally. Diversity is important to Discovery’s continued success, he says. “We need to fully embrace diversity, it will make us more dynamic. Bottom line, the television industry needs to demonstrate more action and do less talking when it comes to diverse representation on screen and at the senior management and board levels.”

We need to fully embrace diversity, it will make us more dynamic. Bottom line, the television industry needs to demonstrate more action and do less talking when it comes to diverse representation on screen and at the senior management and board levels.

What qualities do you look for when making a new hire?

Integrity, Passion and Perseverance.
