Why SyFy? An interview with Craig Engler, SVP SyFy Digital

Welcome to The Drill Down interview series: discussions with movers and shakers in tech, social media, and the web on the issues that drive our online culture.


In this episode we speak with Craig Engler, Senior Vice President of (the soon to be rebranded) SyFy Digital, the division responsible for the cable network’s online and mobile presence. We’ll be discussing the reasons behind the name change (from SciFi to SyFy), what that change means for the network and the website, upcoming programming on the network, and life after Battlestar Galactica.

Apologies in advance for the poor quality of Mr. Engler’s audio. I have cleaned it up as best as possible.
