Discovery Names VP, Head of Content for AsiaPac


Discovery, Inc. has promoted Lynn Ng to the post of VP and head of content for the Asia-Pacific region.

In this role, Ng will continue to spearhead the region’s content strategy and acquisitions, as well as content curation, media planning and creative. Ng joined Discovery in 2002 and was involved when the company pioneered non-fiction original productions out of the Asia Pacific, where she executive produced several award-winning series for Animal Planet.

Simon Robinson, Discovery’s president for AsiaPac, said: “Lynn has been a champion of Discovery’s content since joining the organization 19 years ago, and most recently, has done a fantastic job driving our strategy across the Asia Pacific to significant audience growth. As we continue to ramp up our local originals output and pivot our business to cater to changing consumer demands, Lynn’s leadership in this role will be key in building further scale across our ecosystem of products and platforms.”

Ng added: “The world now knows what we’ve always known—the Asia Pacific is the place to be. Content from our region is resonating like never before, making waves across the globe. In an increasingly surreal world, authentic stories are our tether in the storm and Discovery is committed to telling these stories with creativity and passion, weaving our global expertise in real-life entertainment with the rich tapestry of the Asia Pacific.”
