From a media release:
Scott Moore, President of Sportsnet & NHL Properties, has announced his decision to leave the company at the end of October.
During his eight-year tenure, Moore repositioned the sports and TV businesses to address the evolving media landscape and viewing habits.Â He championed the acquisitions of The Score and Grand Slam of Curling; brokered the deal that brought the FX brand to Canada; launched North Americaâ€™s first direct-to-consumer mainstream sports product with SN NOW; created Rogers Hometown Hockey; and played a key role in helping Rogers secure the blockbuster 12-year NHL deal.
Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, Sportsnet is well positioned for continued growth and success, with a strong team in place to carry the momentum forward.
The search is underway for Mooreâ€™s successor.Â In the interim, Brace will oversee Sportsnet in addition to his current role.
