Rogers Communications will launch Sportsnet Magazine in October. The bi-weekly publication will be a print extension of the Sportsnet brand of cable channels and radio stations owned by Rogers. “This is not a standalone magazine…Everything involved with it will include television and radio and the web. It’ll be fully integrated,” Rogers Media President Keith Pelly said in an interview the Globe and Mail. Mr. Pelley has been talking about better integrating Roger’s media properties since he took his new role last August. Also in October, Rogers Media plans on launching a new w24 Hour news channel. Staff at Rogers’ news stations will contribute reports to CityNews Channel. Sports reports will come from the Sportsnet staff.
