Philadelphia-headquartered creative content studio Alkemy X has tapped former Travel Channel exec Andy Singer (pictured) as its executive VP of television and digital programming.

In the position, Singer will work alongside president and CEO Justin B. Wineburgh to grow the firm’s footprint within the arenas of original television and digital content.

Most recently, Singer served as GM at Scripps Networks Interactive-owned Travel Channel, a role he exited in February 2014 following a restructuring of the network. There, he was responsible for launching such series as Expedition Unknown, Hotel Impossible and Bizarre Foods America.

Prior to his time at Travel Channel, Singer was head of programming at DIY Network before rising to the rank of GM. He oversaw the network’s rebrand and the launch of The Vanilla Ice Project, Rehab Addict and the ‘Crashers’ franchise.

Singer has also held a raft of senior positions at HGTV, VH1 and CBS.

Alkemy X’s unscripted credits include Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible and Food Feuds, as well as Velocity’s Unique Rides.
