Mary Ann Turcke leaves Bell Media, former music exec replaces her

Bell Media is once again juggling its executives as president Mary Ann Turcke departs for a job with the National Football League and Randy Lennox, who spent three decades at Universal Music Canada, steps into her role, the Globe's Christine Dobby reports.
Ms. Turcke is relocating to Los Angeles to become president of digital media and the NFL Network and Bell said Monday that Mr. Lennox, the long-time music executive who joined the company as president of broadcasting and content in September, 2015, is taking over her role immediately.
The NFL and Bell Media, a division of Montreal-based telecommunications giant BCE Inc., have worked closely together in recent months to fight a regulatory ruling that barred Bell from substituting its own television signal and Canadian ads over the U.S. signal during this year’s Super Bowl.
Ms. Turcke, an engineer by background who has been with BCE for 12 years, assumed the top job at Bell Media in April, 2015, following Kevin Crull’s dismissal after he intervened in news coverage at the company’s television stations.
