CBC backs Rogers, Bell, MLSE partnership

TORONTO – If CBC felt left out of the new Bell, Rogers and MLSE alliance, it didn’t let it show. "I would like to congratulate Bell, Rogers and Larry Tanenbaum on their deal announced today. To know the ownership of Canadian teams will be kept in Canadian hands is great news," said Kirstine Stewart, EVP of CBC English Services in a statement Friday. "Increasingly, sports rights deals are dependent on strong partnerships. We are proud of our partnerships with Rogers on the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2014 and with Bell as we prepare our joint Olympic 2014/2016 bid". www.cbcsports.ca
