Tanya Kim’s tenure has come to an end at Rogers in Toronto. The longtime entertainment reporter made the announcement via social media on Thursday, explaining she was the victim of restructuring at the company.
“They say when one door closes, so many more open,” she posted on her Instagram page. “Trust me when I say I believe this wholeheartedly. After two years of bringing you, loyal fans, and viewers the latest in entertainment news on Entertainment City, Breakfast Television Toronto, and Your World This Week, I was officially let go of by the network due to restructuring. They deemed my position to be unnecessary.
“More importantly, I want to take this time to thank from the bottom of my heart a couple of OGs who’ve had my back since day one – Jordan & Sandy, I’ll forever be grateful for you two,” she continued. “And to my incredible BT, Entertainment City, and Your World This Week families, thank you so much for making these past couple of years such a fun and memorable time. The constant love, encouragement, laughs, and support mean the world to me and all of you made my days brighter. I can’t wait to see each one of you continue to shine.”
Adam Wylde, Kim’s former co-worker, was quick to make his feelings known on Thursday via Twitter.
Back in September 2015, BT Toronto made the announcement that Kim had joined their team as the new face of Entertainment City and Rogers Your World This Week.
“Tanya Kim is synonymous with entertainment news in Canada,” Jordan Schwartz, vice-president of in-house productions at Rogers said in a press release at the time. “Over the past 14 years, Tanya has cultivated a strong personal brand that resonates with fans from coast-to-coast. She’s a great addition to our Rogers family.”
Prior to her move to Rogers, Kim was employed by Bell Media as a special correspondent for Canadian Idol before co-hosting etalk with Ben Mulroney in 2003.
