Russo led Discovery Communications’ external communication message following its acquisition of a controlling interest in Eurosport. Going forward, she will develop strategic messaging with Discovery Networks International, as well, so it’s no surprise that when she’s not in the office, she says she can usually be found “in an airport, en route to visiting Discovery’s worldwide offices.”
