Brace to shore up CTV

Specialty topper upped; Bell Globemedia's Shea exits

MONTREAL — Canuck network CTV has appointed Rick Brace prexy, replacing Trina McQueen who retired earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Kevin Shea, exec VP of CTV parent Bell Globemedia with responsibility for new media ventures, is leaving. Bell Globemedia plans to focus on its core businesses of conventional and specialty TV networks.

Brace was prexy of CTV Specialty Television and of CTV Specialty Sports and senior VP of CTV Sports. He oversaw CTV’s specialty channels, including sports webs TSN and RDS, and the Discovery Channel (Canada). Last fall, he handled the launch of six digital specialty channels, including Animal Planet, Discovery Civilization and CTV Travel.

Bell Globemedia’s decision to drop some new-media ventures led to Shea’s departure, said Ivan Fecan, CEO of Bell Globemedia.

“Kevin was given a difficult assignment to expand our lines of business, but times change and we need to concentrate on value creation closer to our core businesses,” said Fecan.
