From a media release:
Rogers Communications today announced that Keith Pelley, President, Rogers Media, will leave the company to become the new Commissioner and CEO of The European Tour – a global golf tour featuring 48 events in 26 countries. He will remain President of Rogers Media until his departure this summer.
During his tenure, Pelley repositioned the media business to address the changing media landscape. He reorganized the media division, breaking down silos to function in an integrated manner across the diverse portfolio of assets; he led the push to digital across the publishing brands; launched shomi and Next Issue in Canada; launched Sportsnet magazine to make Sportsnet the only five-platform sports media brand in the country; and expanded the reach of the company’s TV assets to deliver world-class content to more Canadians. He joined the company in August 2010.
A search for Pelley’s successor will begin and details on his exact departure date will be announced later.
