Scott Moore leaves the CBC

The GM of media sales and marketing and executive director of CBC Sports has resigned after three years with the pubcaster.

Scott Moore, executive director of CBC Sports and general manager of the CBC Revenue Group, has resigned. An announcement regarding his next move is expected later today.

While the pubcaster searches for a replacement, senior director David Masse will take over Moore’s position at CBC Sports. Jack Tomik will be taking Moore’s place in the Revenue Group, which is responsible for marketing, sales and business development.

Moore had been with the CBC since 2007, arriving after holding senior positions at CTV, TSN and Rogers Sportsnet.

Masse has played roles at CBC Sports in delivering the Beijing Olympics, Hockey Night in Canada and the 2010 World Cup to viewers.

Tomik has worked with CBC Sports since early 2009, when he was brought in as an advisor to Moore. He was formerly a sales executive with Canwest and an independent consultant who specializes in brand, sales and marketing.

‘This has been a difficult decision,’ Moore said in a statement. ‘It’s been a privilege to work with great colleagues on some of the best sports programming in the world and to help build a sales and marketing team that has grown the business despite considerable market adversity. I’ll always be proud of this place and what it does.’

The CBC is finalizing the details of a search plan for a new executive director of CBC Sports.
