Ok, so now Marek has more than Brunted a deal with Sportsnet, he has officially joined team Sportsnet.
Marek spoke “exclusively” to me this morning:
“It was a tough decision to leave CBC Sports but the opportunities at Rogers Sportsnet made this too good an offer to turn down. Rogers laid out for me where they plan on being in one year, three years, five years, ten years that is extremely exciting. It’s growing on all platforms with a clear direction of who they are and where they are going to be. I wanted to be part of that. In addition I have worked under Scott Moore at CBC Sports and have seen first hand how he can galvanize a place and push it forward. He’s one of the main reasons I made the move. Also, the opportunity to work with the crew at Hockey Central was really attractive.”
More from Boston later.
