In a move that would be applauded by many Rogers Sports and Media has announced that they have hired Lisa LaFlamme who was fired by Bell Media, who then promptly then mishandled the situation in epic fashion. You can read the full saga here. LaFlamme will cover the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II as a special correspondent for CityNews, and make appearances for Breakfast Television as well.
The cynic in me says that this move was opportunistic to both get some positive press for Rogers, as well as to pile onto Bell’s complete mishandling of this situation. But I am also happy for LaFlamme as she was royally (pun intended) screwed over by Bell Media. And I imagine that many in the public are happy as well.
I wonder what the suits at Bell Media must be thinking.
