What are some of John Hendricks’ proudest career moments?

My entire career is the creation of the Discovery Channel — creating that and getting it on the satellite. We first went up on June 17, 1985, and since that time, we’ve been lucky to acquire TLC in 1991, and create others from scratch, like Animal Planet, the Science Channel and Discovery Health. And we’re fortunate to have some great partners, like Oprah. We’re partners with her on the Oprah Winfrey Network, OWN. And it’s just such a thrill now to travel almost anywhere in the world. I mean, I was in a fishing village in Thailand and people had Discovery Channel. It was just amazing.
