Leslie Sole, CEO of Canada’s Rogers Media Television, has left the company, parent Rogers Communications confirmed Thursday.

Sole is the most recent departure from a Keith Pelley-era Rogers Media after Jason Tafler was named chief digital officer earlier this week, replacing outgoing senior vice president and general manager Claude Galipeau.

Sole, who has been with Rogers Television since 1987, was named chief content officer last November after expanding the TV division to include five Citytv TV stations, five OMNI-branded TV stations and three specialty channels.

Sole’s departure was first reported by Caart.ca.

Also last fall, former CBC exec Scott Moore was named president of broadcasting at Rogers Media, overseeing the TV assets.
