PR Newswire

TORONTO, Feb. 14, 2013

TORONTO, Feb. 14,  2013 /PRNewswire/ -  Rogers Communications announced  today 
that the company's President and  Chief Executive Officer, Nadir Mohamed,  has 
decided to retire in  January 2014. Mr.  Mohamed has agreed  to work with  the 
board to ensure a seamless and orderly transition and to continue to lead  the 
company in 2013.

"Nadir is a  highly regarded executive  who has delivered  strong results  and 
substantial value for  more than a  decade," said Alan  Horn, Chairman of  the 
Board, Rogers Communications  Inc. "Thanks  to his  disciplined and  strategic 
management approach  we've  strengthened  our core  business,  solidified  our 
financial position  and set  Rogers up  for long-term  success. The  board  is 
grateful for his significant contributions  and looks forward to working  with 
him to ensure a seamless and orderly transition."

Rogers Board of Directors will appoint a search committee and select a  search 
firm to begin  an international search.  Edward Rogers will  not put his  name 
forward as a candidate and neither will  Melinda Rogers and they will both  be 
involved in  the search  process. Mr.  Mohamed  will also  be engaged  in  the 
selection process.

Mr. Mohamed began his communications career more than 30 years ago and  joined 
Rogers in August 2000. He was President  and CEO of Rogers Wireless from  2001 
to 2005 and was appointed President and COO of Rogers Communications Group  in 
2005. Mr. Mohamed was appointed President and Chief Executive Officer in March
2009 succeeding the late company founder Ted Rogers.

"It's truly  a  privilege to  work  with the  Rogers  family, the  board,  the 
leadership team and our  employees to deliver  for customers and  shareholders 
and to set the foundation for  the future," said Nadir Mohamed, President  and 
Chief Executive Officer. "The Company has a seasoned executive team, the  best 
asset mix in North America, the  most advanced networks and the best  platform 
to lead and drive the  next wave of growth. The  company's in great shape  and 
it's time to start the transition  to the next generation of leadership.  Over 
the next year I look  forward to delivering strong  results and to ensuring  a 
seamless transition."

Since Mohamed  became CEO  in March  2009 the  company has  delivered a  total 
shareholder return of 81%.  During his tenure the  company became the  largest 
wireless carrier in Canada; consistently delivered best in class Wireless  and 
Cable margins;  significantly  strengthened the  balance  sheet;  consistently 
delivered first-to-market solutions; and set the foundation for future growth.

"Nadir skillfully led the  company during an extraordinary  time of change  in 
our history  and the  history of  our industry,"  said Edward  Rogers,  Deputy 
Chairman and Chair of the  Rogers Control Trust. "On  behalf of the company  I 
thank Nadir for his ongoing leadership and for strengthening the company  both 
operationally and financially."
