Zaslav started his career as an
attorney in a law firm in New York. In 1989, he joined NBC as the President of
Cable and Domestic TV and New Media Distribution. He oversaw the content distribution
to all forms of TV, and NBCUniversal’s interests in The History Channel, The
Biography Channel, National Geographic International, and The Sundance Channel
among others.

In 2006, he succeeded Judith McHale as
the CEO of Discovery Communications. Zaslav instigated a shift in the strategy
of the company, aiming to see itself more as a ‘content company’ than a ‘cable
company.’ Discovery began trading
as a public company in 2008, and became a Fortune 500 company by 2014,
while under his leadership.
