Rogers Sportsnet continues to shake things up on their hockey coverage. Their latest addition is Scott Morrison. Morrison leaves CBC and Hockey Night in Canada after working there for five years. He was best known as co-host of the I-desk segments with Jeff Marek whom also joined RSN during the off-season.
Morrison’s role will be a little different at Rogers compared to his time at CBC.
Morrison will be the new Executive Producer of Hockey at Rogers. While much of his job will be behind the scenes, he’ll still have an on air presence. Morrison will appear on Sportsnet’s Hockey Central show as an insider. He will also show up on the Rogers radio stations Fan 590 and Fan 560. He will be a regular writer for the new Sportsnet Magazine and Sportsnet.ca.
This is Morrison’s second stint with Sportsnet as he first joined the network in 2001 as the channel’s executive in charge of hockey and news. He started his career as a writer with the Toronto Star in 1979 and was honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006.
CBC’s future plans for the I-desk is unknown. Morrison often showed up on HNIC Radio along with host and I-desk partner Marek. A new host for HNIC Radio is expected to be announced soon.
