Original Video Channel Extends Discovery News Brand, Entertains the Insatiably Curious

Silver Spring, Md. – Since 1998, Discovery News has been a leading news source with smart takes on trending topics – from the incredible science behind today’s headlines, to the mind-blowing technology of tomorrow. Today, Discovery Communications unveils the company’s latest original online video series, DNews, which will inform and entertain audiences curious about the world around them.

Produced by Revision3 and available on YouTube, at DiscoveryNews.com, at Revision3.com and across numerous digital platforms, DNews is hosted by Anthony Carboni, Laci Green and Trace Dominguez, who act as curators of the most topical stories through three original daily video pieces. Together the DNews team makes science digestible, fun and irreverent – yet still analytical and informative.

Anthony Carboni: Hosting and producing content for TV and the web since 2003, Carboni got his start with G4’s Attack of the Show! and MTV’s Iggy Music Show. With Revision3 since 2009, he helped to create original programming for Rev3Games, a network of gaming-focused content, and also currently hosts SGNL by Sony, Random Encounter and Casual Friday.

Trace Dominguez: Working with technology and gadgets since before he could walk, Dominguez explored science, psychology, history and communication in his undergraduate and graduate work. His affinity for science and making videos led him to Discovery News, where he’s best known for his sarcastic and succinct This Week in Discovery News video series.

Laci Green: Green is a health expert, sex educator, crisis counselor and UC Berkeley graduate and has been teaching sex education at the high school and university level since 2008. Laci hosts and produces her own successful YouTube video series called Sex+ and produces video content for Planned Parenthood.

“Discovery News has built an engaged audience online, and we’re excited to offer a new go-to resource for people curious about the intersection of science and their world with DNews,” said Sean Atkins, Senior Vice President of Digital Media, Discovery Communications. “Anthony, Laci and Trace are the perfect guides for a voyage of igniting curiosity three times a day!”

DNews is the most recent addition to Discovery Communications’ online video offerings, with more than 40 Revision3 shows available across digital platforms. For a full list of channels and shows, please visit Revision3.com/Shows.
