Latman’s role at Discovery expanded in April, with the veteran TV exec tasked with writing the Travel guide book for Discovery Inc. She oversees creative leadership and programming strategy for the former Scripps Networks property, while continuing to head up development and research for American Heroes and ratings juggernaut Investigation Discovery.
