Rogers Communications has let go 94 employees from its media division, or about 2 per cent of the workforce, the Star reports.
Rogers Media includes magazines such as Maclean’s, Chatelaine, Today’s Parent and Canadian Grocer. It also encompasses City-TV, OMNI, Sportsnet, and a string of radio stations.
Rogers spokeswoman Andrea Goldstein said the layoffs are spread widely across the media division.
“I’m unable to provide details,” she said. “What I can confirm for you is that it wasn’t concentrated in one specific area, or one asset, or one level of the company.”
The Toronto Blue Jays and the Rogers Centre were spared from the cuts, she said.
Keith Pelley, president of Rogers Media, had made the announcement in a statement that gave no details.
