Discovery Communications to move out of Silver Spring
I have often walked near the Discovery Communications buildings in Silver Spring when going to events at the AFI Silver Theater.
So today everyone is surprised to learn that Discovery will sell its building in late 2019 as it moves much of its operations to New York City. It will retain operations in Sterling, VA and Knoxville TN and may have other smaller locations in Maryland.
I’ve often watched many cable shows on Discovery, which has made many important television documentaries, mostly about science, ranging from astronomy to wildlife, somewhat akin to National Geographic.
The Washington Post has a major story here.
