Sportnet Is Cutting An Undisclosed Amount Of Jobs

Rogers Media is cutting an unspecified number of off-air jobs across its Sportsnet organization. Earlier they let go star broadcaster Bob McCown after 30 years as host of the afternoon program “Prime Time Sports.” A Sportsnet representative says the company isn’t saying publicly how many off-air people are affected by the broader changes or what types of work they do. But an emailed statement says Sportsnet is repositioning for the future by changing how it delivers content to audiences. Rogers Media is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rogers Communications.
