Discovery Networks US Hispanic Group has formed a specialised advertising sales team to represent the company’s expanded portfolio of Spanish-language networks in the US: Discovery en Español, Discovery Kids en Español and Discovery Travel & Living (Viajar y Vivir).

“Discovery’s three Spanish-language networks have been well-received by the advertising community, and we are now prepared to better serve their needs with a more diverse, well-rounded sales team based in key Hispanic markets throughout the country,” said Victor Parada, director of ad sales for the US Hispanic Group. The new team will be based in Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York.

Eric Osipow, a seven-year veteran of the group’s parent, Discovery Communications, has been named regional manager of advertising sales for the central region, based in Chicago. Osipow will be responsible for markets including Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Chicago and Detroit. Previously, Osipow worked with Discovery Networks’ US ad sales division.
