Brad Phillips set to retire from Corus Entertainment

“The true mark of a great career is not just winning at the highest levels, but winning the respect of colleagues and competitors while doing something you love,” added Troy Reeb, Executive Vice President, Broadcast Networks, Corus Entertainment. “I want to thank Brad for his tremendous contributions to Corus, and to the broader industry which he will no doubt continue to support in his next chapter.”
