Rogers Media has decided against a second season of Canada’s Got Talent.

Indie producer Insight Productions, which produced the local version of the international Got Talent franchise for Citytv, was told of the decision Friday morning.

“After careful consideration of all factors, including the current economic climate, Citytv has refocused its programming strategy and will not be producing Canada’s Got Talent for the 2012-13 season,” Rogers Media president of broadcasting Scott Moore said in a statement.

“Citytv remains extremely proud of Canada’s Got Talent and the national platform it provided to showcase our inaugural Canada’s Got Talent reality competition show,” he added.
