Bell taps ex-Global prexy

Shea to serve as group exec VP of convergence

MONTREAL — Seasoned Canuck exec Kevin Shea, who ankled his job as prexy and chief operating officer of Global Television Network in February, has turned up as group exec VP of convergence at rival entertainment company Bell Globemedia.

Shea, who starts immediately, will integrate the company’s many assets as it gears up for major competition on the multi-media front in the coming months.

Bell Globemedia, set up in January, covers broadcast and print including Canadian TV network CTV, national newspaper The Globe and Mail, Globe Interactive and Internet portal Sympatico.

The company is controlled by BCE, which runs telecom giant Bell Canada and the DTH service Bell Expressvu.

Shea’s previous employer, CanWest Global Communications, has also created an integrated company with broadcast, newspaper and new-media assets. It owns the Global Television Network and acquired many of the country’s top newspapers last year from Hollinger, including The Globe and Mail’s main competitor, the National Post.
