"Ask Ted Koppel" Feature Launched at DiscoveryChannelBeyond.com

Discovery Communications has expanded its Discovery News service to include a new weekly feature called “Ask Ted Koppel,” available at Discovery’s broadband channel, Discovery Channel Beyond (www.discoverychannelbeyond.com) in the Discovery News section.  Focusing on current events and relevant global topics such as Iraq and global warming, fans can email questions to asktedkoppel@discovery.com that Koppel will answer via a short video clip. 

“It is hard to imagine anyone better for answering important questions in an interactive format than one of the best askers of questions in all of journalism. Ted Koppel’s unparalleled ability to present insight and context about world events translates perfectly to our new broadband offerings,” said Don Baer, Senior Executive Vice President for Strategy & Development, Discovery Communications.  “For audiences seeking greater substance on topics important to them, they now have the unique opportunity through ‘Ask Ted Koppel’ to get direct feedback and perspective from one of the legendary authorities in world news.”

About the Discovery News Webcast
The “Ask Ted Koppel” feature reflects the type of in-depth and relevant information that can be explored on the new Discovery News webcast.  The news service offers information in the areas of science, nature, health, travel, all things about planet earth and current affairs.  Updated daily with original short-form video that is fully searchable, Discovery News offers perspective and commentary from multiple video sources including the company’s in-house development and editorial team and Associated Press Television News. 

About the Koppel Group
Discovery Communications announced in January 2006 that Ted Koppel, along with longtime executive producer Tom Bettag and eight former Nightline staff members, would join Discovery Channel as managing editor to produce long-form programming examining major global topics and world events.  The Koppel Group debuts its first production, the groundbreaking Discovery Channel series, KOPPEL ON DISCOVERY, with a three-hour primetime special on September 10, 2006.  Koppel’s world premiere, Security and Liberty (wt), exploring the dilemma the government faces in the war on terrorism, will be followed by a live town meeting hosted by Koppel at the National War College with 9/11 family members, civil libertarians, Administration officials and Members of Congress.
