Network spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg said Sunday that the network's thoughts and prayers go out to the Sherpa community of guides who were the victims of the avalanche.
Jumper Joby Ogwyn already was at Everest in advance of the jump, which was scheduled to be televised live on May 11 worldwide. He was not injured in the avalanche.
Discovery had hoped for big ratings with the stunt, and had scheduled several hours of coverage in anticipation.
