TSN president Phil King has been promoted to president of sports and executive vice-president of programming at CTV, the network announced on Thursday. The move follows another announcement earlier last week that Keith Pelley, another former president of TSN and a one-time boss of King, would be leaving CTV to run Rogers Media. ‘Phil has built an amazing organization at TSN and has proven himself as a first-rate leader,’ Ivan Fecan, CTV globemedia president and CEO, said of the promotion.
Meanwhile, CTV has also promoted Alon Marcovici to the position of EVP, Digital Media. He will report directly to Fecan. Marcovici was a driving force behind the digital manifestation of the Olympic Consortium, and will continue in his role of VP of digital for the Olympic effort.
