Daigle, Farina Elevated At Bell Media As Corey Exits

Dave Daigle and Rob Farina have been given elevated roles at Bell Media as David Corey returns to the US for an as yet unnamed position.

Daigle is named VP, Radio and Local TV at Bell Media, responsible for all 105 local radio and 30 local TV stations across the country. In this role, he will develop and execute a plan to improve brand assets by promoting revenue growth, profitability, ratings, and best practices for radio and local TV.

In addition to his current reports, Dave will now support Regional Vice-Presidents and General Managers Martin Spalding and James Stuart.

Rob Farina has been named to the position of head of radio content, strategy, and iHeartRadio for Bell Media, effective May 29.

The company said Thursday that the move follows the upcoming departure of David Corey, vice-president of radio programming, later this month for a new opportunity in the US.

Farina (pictured) was formerly head of iHeartRadio, syndication, and strategic initiatives. In his new position, Farina is now charged with oversight of all content on Bell Media Radio and content syndication pushed through Orbyt Media.

“Rob is a tremendous asset to our radio operations and I am delighted to have him on board in this new role at Bell Media," said radio and local TV president Nikki Moffat, in the announcement.  "He is an extremely talented radio executive and I am confident that he will continue to elevate iHeartRadio along with all of our Bell Media Radio properties across Canada, while driving growth, profitability, and innovation.

Corey was responsible for national programming initiatives across Bell Media Radio as well as the management of all aspects of Toronto’s 104.5 CHUM FM. He will remain with the company and assist with the transition until he departs on Friday, May 26. He joined the media company in 2006 as a program coordinator and eventually transitioned to his current VP, Radio Programming position.
