Programming exec Malcolm Dunlop leaving Rogers
August 20, 2013 | Chris Powell | Comments
After a three-decade career with Rogers Media, executive vice-president of programming and operations Malcolm Dunlop is leaving the company at the end of the month.
Rogers Media’s senior director of communications, Andrea Goldstein, confirmed Tuesday that Dunlop’s final day with the company is Aug. 30. Details of a new organizational structure will follow in the “coming weeks” said Goldstein.
Dunlop began his career with Rogers in 1985 as national sales executive with the ethnic TV station Omni Television. He held increasingly senior roles with Omni over the next 22 years, including national language sales representative, supervisor of national language sales, and director of national sales and commercial production.
After demonstrating what a company bio described as a “keen interest” in various aspects of the company, including sales and acquired programming, he was promoted to VP, sales and programming in 2004.
Dunlop was named EVP of programming in 2007, charged with overseeing programming for all of Rogers Media’s conventional and specialty (non-sports) channels. Along with his programming team, he helped build City’s primetime schedule with the acquisition of flagship shows including Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, The Bachelor and 2 Broke Girls.
“Malcolm has had a tremendous career with OMNI Television and City,” said Scott Moore, president of broadcast, Rogers Media, in a statement to Marketing. “His knowledge of, and passion for the TV industry helped forever change Rogers Media’s standing in the Canadian television landscape, and has cemented City as a key player among the country’s top networks.”
