Ted Rogers, indisputably one of Canada’s most legendary business figures, died yesterday at home, surrounded by loved ones.
Successful, pioneering and visionary, Ted built a media empire by making big bets. There were times when no one believed Rogers would crawl out from under all the debt he took on, but counting on recurring revenue from Cable TV, and his legal mastery of the government regulation of telecommunications, Ted and his company Rogers survived and prospered.
Our condolences go out to Ted’s family and friends. CBC coverage can be found here.
