Mark Stern elevated to programming prexy at Syfy

Exclusive: Syfy’s Mark Stern, who has overseen the channel’s rapid series expansion, has been rewarded with the title of original programming president.

Move comes on the eve of the NBC Universal-Comcast merger and cements the exec’s growing role within the company. The NBC U cabler is expected to announce Stern’s promotion today during NBC U’s portion of the TV Critics Assn. press tour.

Stern had previously served as exec VP of original programming. He continues to report to Syfy president Dave Howe (who’s about to add oversight of Chiller to his duties as well).

Howe called Stern “an incredibly creative and business-savvy leader.”

“Mark is a supremely smart and talented executive whose unbridled passion, energy and imagination continue to drive Syfy’s world-class development team.”
