Susanna Dinnage, Global President of Animal Planet, is to leave parent Discovery after 10 years.
The channel is being moved to Discovery’s factual division, where it will come under the remit of Nancy Daniels.
Dinnage has been in charge of Animal Planet since September 2017.
Last November Dinnage was named as the new chief executive of the Premier League, but six weeks later it was announced she would remain at Discovery after all.
Since joining Discovery in 2009, she has served in several leadership roles, including as general manager of the UK and Benelux businesses, and most recently as President of UK/Ireland and Chief Content Officer for Discovery Networks International.―Broadband TV News
