From a media release:
As announced on Sportsnet moments ago, long-time Sportsnet personality Sid Seixeiro is leaving Tim & Sid to join Breakfast Television on Citytv as the morning showâ€™s new co-host.
Beginning March 10, Seixeiro will wake up audiences alongside current co-host and fan favourite Dina Pugliese and the rest of the BT family â€“ Devo Brown, Frank Ferragine (aka Frankie Flowers), Stephanie Henry, Melanie Ng, Nicole Servinis and Tammie Sutherland.
â€œItâ€™s been a dream to work 20 years in the sports industry, especially alongside Tim Micallef, and express my passion and love for sports on a daily basis. However, Iâ€™ve always been curious to explore other areas of the business and this was a unique opportunity that I couldnâ€™t pass up. Iâ€™m so excited to begin this next adventure with Dina and the BT family,â€ said Seixeiro. â€œWhile I look forward to my next chapter, this news is truly bittersweet for me. It has been an honour coming to work and talking sports with Tim for all of these years. I couldnâ€™t have asked for a better partner. To the entire showâ€™s crew and our incredible Tim & Sidizens, thank you.â€
Seixeiro marks the end of his long-time tenure as one-half of Sportsnetâ€™s edu-taining duo, Tim & Sid, alongside co-host Tim Micallef. Over the next few weeks, fans of both Breakfast Television and Tim & Sid will see Seixeiro across both Rogers Sports & Media shows.
Seixeiroâ€™s last Tim & Sid air date is scheduled for February 26. Micallef will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET timeslot on Sportsnet television and radio, delivering the latest headlines, hot takes and exclusive interviews alongside a rotating panel of friends of the show, until further details are announced.
