Rogers Media president leaving to take helm of European golf tour

Keith Pelley, the Rogers Media president who played a central role in the company’s takeover of National Hockey League broadcasting in Canada, is leaving the company to be commissioner of a golf tour in Europe.
Rogers Communications Inc. announced Friday that Mr. Pelley, 51, will continue in his role until “this summer,” when he departs to take the helm of The European Tour, which oversees 48 golf events in 26 countries.
He joined Rogers in 2010, and has a lengthy résumé in sports media.
Before joining the company, he led the Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium that covered the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and spent four years as president and CEO of the Toronto Argonauts football team, leading it to a Grey Cup win in 2004.
