Discovery Names VP of Legislative Affairs
In her new role, Ms Rogers is responsible for monitoring federal legislative issues and advocating on Discovery's behalf on Capitol Hill. In addition, she will be involved in developing and implementing public-private partnerships for Discovery's quality brands.
Ms Rogers will be based at the company's global headquarters in Silver Spring.
Most recently, Ms Rogers was with Time Warner where she was vice president of global public policy. In this role, she assisted in the development of the company's policy objectives, interacting regularly with members of congress and senior government officials to relay Time Warner's core mission and advocate on the media company's behalf.
Ms Rogers prior experience includes work with the national cable and telecommunications association and the department of commerce.
Mr Verveer said: “Cinnamon's background and expertise in both the media industry and legislative affairs make her the right executive to identify and manage issues and opportunities for Discovery on Capitol Hill.”
