    Dangar, who was senior VP of domestic distribution at Discovery Communications, reports to TWCC CEO Michael J. Kelly at the programmer's Atlanta headquarters.

    She will provide the strategic direction and leadership of TWCC's distribution and business development efforts with cable, satellite and telecommunications operators and distributed content partners, the company said.

    "As the world's largest cross-platform media company, with a dominant position in mobile, web and availability in over 100 million homes, Jennifer will help our efforts to expand our relationships with our distribution partners across all our platforms in new and innovative ways," Kelly said in a release. "Her extensive experience, knowledge and longstanding relationships in the industry will make her a great addition to our senior executive team."

    Dangar has been at TWCC since July 12, the company said in a release dated Aug. 16.

    As SVP of domestic distribution for Discovery Networks US, Dangar and her team oversaw all aspects of account management for the top distributors and were responsible for distribution of all new networks within the Discovery portfolio. She oversaw new media distribution and was charged with negotiating agreements with affiliates and new entrants to gain widespread distribution for Discovery's non-linear video products when she rejoined Discovery in 2004.

    Dangar returned to Discovery after five years with Turner Broadcasting, where she served as VP of national accounts and strategic marketing. Early in her career she held positions at C-SPAN and Viewer's Choice (now In Demand).

    Dangar has been active in industry groups including holding leadership roles with WICT, CAB and CTAM. She has been recognized for her contributions to the industry, winning numerous WICT, CTAM Mark and CTPAA Beacon Awards. In March, she was recognized by Multichannel News and the New York chapter of WICT as a Wonder Woman (video clip here).
    She lives in Atlanta with her family.

    TWCC is owned by a consortium made up of NBC Universal and the private equity firms The Blackstone Group and Bain Capital.
