EXCLUSIVE: A reliable industry source has told me that Rogers Media in Toronto has been selected by FOX Sports Media Group to produce a yet-to-be-named soccer newscast, presumably starting October 1, for airing on FOX Soccer in the U.S. and Sportsnet World in Canada.
The new Toronto-based show will replace BOTH Fox Soccer Report and SportsNet World Connected.
My original source who gave me the tip that FOX Sports officials met with Rogers in Toronto in April was spot on.
Shaw Media will shut down the production of FOX Soccer Report from 201 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg by no later than September 30.
