Mary Ann Turcke off to NFL, Lennox now Bell Media boss

Mary Ann Turcke is off to the NFL. The engineer and Bell Media overseer (CTV and the rest) will become the head of digital media for the football league. Randy Lennox takes over at Bell Media. Many will ask if Turcke’s move involves a way to help her former boss, now an important customer, play Canadian commercials during the Super Bowl. Turcke assumed the top job at Bell Media when Kevin Crull stressed out and tried to censor criticism of Bell by the federal broadcast regulator, the CRTC, in 2015. The NFL and Bell Media, a division of Montreal-based telecommunications giant BCE Inc., have tried to fight a regulatory ruling that barred Bell from substituting its own television signal and Canadian ads over the U.S. signal during the Super Bowl.
