SCI FI APPOINTS NEW VP, STRATEGIC MARKETING

New York, NY � June 18, 2007 -- SCI FI announced today the appointment of Shari Weisenberg to the newly created position of VP, Strategic Marketing.

SCI FI's emphasis on integrated sponsorship reflects the Channel's strategy to help advertisers better connect with its core audience of tech-savvy early adopters. According to Experian Simmons Research, SCI FI Channel viewers were ranked first in two of the four Tipping Point categories -- consumer groups that most influence the marketplace, and that can bring a thought or idea to its critical mass -- that were detailed in Malcolm Gladwell's book by the same name. According to the study, SCI FI viewers ranked number one among all cable networks in adults 18 � 49 in the mavens category, those key players in word of mouth marketing that share information through personal and on-line exchange; and in the Innovators category, the trendsetters who are the first to embrace new technologies.

"SCI FI consistently provides innovative multi-platform access to a unique audience that is invaluable for driving our customer's marketing initiatives forward," said Adam Stotsky, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Creative, SCI FI Channel. "Shari's strong sales marketing background, her strategic insight and creative instincts will be will an asset for SCI FI's sales force to maximize partnership opportunities for our growing roster of advertisers. We are privileged to have her on our team."

A seasoned sales marketing professional, Ms. Weisenberg has positioned, packaged and collaborated in selling over 40 new series into the advertising marketplace. She brings a depth of media, digital and production experience to her role. Prior to joining SCI FI, she served as Director of Marketing for Bravo, where she was responsible for the development of British Airways' integrated partnership of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which earned Mediaweek's Media Plan of the Year; Macy's sponsorship of Project Runway and Sears' sponsorship of Top Chef. Before that, she served as Marketing Director for CNBC. Ms. Weisenberg also served as Senior Vice President, Business Development for the digital agency, thoughtbubble, where she consulted for a variety of entertainment brands such as AMC, CNN, IFC, Showtime, Columbia Tri-Star, Miramax, New Line, Sony, Warner Bros and Roadrunner.
