Sportsnet, which is owned by Rogers Media, is making a $650,000 donation to the journalism school — the biggest in the history of the department. The funds will help advance sports journalism at the university.
“This exceptional gift shows how highly regarded our journalism program is,” says Concordia President Alan Shepard. “Sportsnet’s donation reinforces the importance of journalism education in a quickly evolving medium. It will ensure that tomorrow’s reporters, writers and commentators are ahead of the game.”
“We’re very impressed by the excellent programs in Concordia’s Department of Journalism,” says Scott Moore, president of Sportsnet and NHL Properties for Rogers Media. “It has a number of terrific graduates, some of whom work for Sportsnet.”
