Tim Brooks (born April 18, 1942) is an American television and radio historian, author and retired television executive. He is credited with having helped launch the Sci Fi Channel in 1992 as well as other USA Network projects and channels.
Comments made by Brooks regarding the Sci Fi Channels name being changed in 2009 to Syfy led network president Dave Howe to publicly distance himself and his network from Brooks' comments.
The Complete Directory by Brooks and Marsh won a 1980 U.S. National Book Award in the one-year category General Reference (paperback).
