2011 Digital PR Awards – Digital PR Team of the Year: Corporate


Winner: Discovery Communications Social Media Team

Established in 2009, Discovery Communications’ nine-person social media team is guided by four goals: build community among fans across platforms; drive tune-in to its TV shows; generate pages views, video streams and sales on Discovery’s Web sites; and gather insights to inform all areas of the business. Led by Gayle Weiswasser, VP of social media communications, and Matt Crenshaw, VP of marketing and analytics, the team ensures that fans of all of Discovery’s brands are presented with compelling content on a regular basis.
