Tony Viner announces retirement from Rogers Media
Rogers Media president and CEO Tony Viner has announced his retirement from the company.

Viner joined Rogers in 1982 as radio station's CFTR/CHFI executive vice president and general manager, working his way up through the company and being named to his current position in April 1999, according to his biography. In his role as Rogers Media president and CEO, Viner is responsible for Rogers Publishing, OMNI Television, 46 radio stations, Rogers Sportsnet, The Shopping Channel and The Toronto Blue Jays.

During his time at the company Rogers purchased and integrated Maclean-Hunter's publications, The Toronto Blue Jays and City-tv.

“Tony has been a key part of our management team and has delivered solid results,” said Rogers Communications president and CEO Nadir Mohamed in a press release.  “Our media division has dramatically expanded and thrived under his leadership so that today Rogers Media has many of the country’s premier media brands.”

Tony Viner will stay with the company until a successor is named to ensure a seamless transition, said the press release. In a note to Rogers staff and published by Rogers-owned Marketing magazine, Viner said he plans to use his retirement to do some board and charitable activites and "work on his golf game."
