Malcolm Dunlop is stepping down as Rogers Media’s top programming exec on August 30.
The departure follows news earlier this month that Claire Freeland, director of programming at the Canadian broadcaster, is also leaving, with her last day being on September 30.
Sources at Rogers Media indicate that details on the evolving programming suite at City and its sister TV stations in the Rogers fold will be announced in the coming weeks, according to realscreen‘s sister publication Playback.
Dunlop, as executive vice president of TV programming and operations, increased the primetime ratings at City in recent years, with a string of U.S. comedies such as Two Broke Girls and New Girl.
The channel also rolled out new Canadian series like Bachelor Canada and the upcoming Storage Wars Canada. Dunlop joined Rogers’ broadcast arm in 1985, with OMNI Television.
