Students tour Discovery Channel headquarters A group of 10 Delaware Te c h n i c a l C o m m u n i t y College Communications Tech- nology students recently took a behind-the-scenes tour of the international headquarters of Discovery Communications in Silver Spring, Md., Discovery Communications is the parent company of such stations as The Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC and Investigation Discovery, among others. Bert Collins, Discovery’s direc- tor of emerging technology, led the tour of the production fa- cility, which included stops at an HD editing suite, an audio editing suite and the 4K editing suite, and an overview of the company’s media operations. Then the students ventured to the main headquarters where they visited a research and de- velopment lab. They heard the company’s history and an over- view of daily operations. “When I first heard about the opportunity for Communica- tions students to go on a trip to Discovery Channel headquarters, I was excited, but I had no idea what exactly we would be doing,” said communications student Brennan Weber. “It turns out we were in for a fully immersive tour of the production and editing process, as well as the ability to meet the editors, audio techs, and staff behind the shows.” “We were grateful to have been given such access by the staff at Discovery,” said Rob Rector, chair of the Communi- cations Technology program. “They went above and beyond to provide students with hands-on demonstrations and invaluable insight, not only to the company, but the global state of mass me- dia.” “It was amazing to see what people who are former Com- munications majors can do after school, and it got me excited to see what the future holds for me and my fellow classmates,” Weber said. “We are fortunate to have such an established, well-respected media giant within our area,” Rector said.
