TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2013

TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Rogers Communications Inc. ("Rogers")
announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has accepted a notice
filed by Rogers of its intention to renew its prior normal course issuer bid
("NCIB") for its Class B Non-Voting shares ("Class B shares") for a further
one-year period.

As previously announced on February 14, 2013, the Board of Directors of Rogers
has authorized such  share repurchases  because it believes  that, at  certain 
times, the  purchase  of Class  B  shares  may represent  an  appropriate  and 
desirable  use  of  Rogers'  available  funds  when,  if  in  the  opinion  of 
management, the value of the Class B shares exceeds the trading price of  such 
shares. Such purchases would provide additional liquidity to shareholders  and 
benefit the remaining  shareholders by increasing  their proportionate  equity 
interest in Rogers.

The TSX  notice provides  that  Rogers may,  during  the twelve  month  period 
commencing February 25, 2013 and ending February 24, 2014, purchase on the TSX
the lesser of 35.8million Class  B shares, representing approximately 10%  of 
the public float of the Class B shares, and that number of Class B shares that
can be  purchased under  the NCIB  for  an aggregate  purchase price  of  $500 
million. The actual number of Class B shares purchased, if any, and the timing
of such purchases will be determined by Rogers, considering market conditions,
stock prices, its cash  position, and other factors.  As at February 11,  2013 
there were approximately 402.8 million  Class B shares issued and  outstanding 
and the public float consisted of approximately 358.2 million Class B shares.

There cannot be any assurances as to how many shares, if any, will  ultimately 
be acquired  by Rogers  under the  NCIB, and  Rogers intends  that any  shares 
acquired pursuant to the NCIB will  be cancelled. No Normal Course Issuer  Bid 
is proposed to be made for Rogers' Class A Voting shares.

Any purchases  made  pursuant  to  the  NCIB  will  be  effected  through  the 
facilities of the TSX, the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and/or alternative
trading systems in accordance with  the rules of the TSX  and will be made  at 
the market price of the Class B shares at the time of the acquisition.  Rogers 
will make no purchases under the NCIB of Class B shares other than open market
purchases which may be  made during the period  that the NCIB is  outstanding. 
Rogers may, from time to time, purchase Class B shares outside the  facilities 
of the TSX and the NYSE pursuant to exemption orders. When such a purchase  is 
made, if and  as required,  Rogers will issue  a press  release regarding  the 
details of that purchase.  Subject to any block  purchases made in  accordance 
with the  rules of  the TSX,  Rogers will  be subject  to a  daily  repurchase 
restriction of 279,537  Class B shares.  Any purchases made by way of  private 
purchases  under  an  issuer  bid  exemption  order  issued  by  a  securities 
regulatory authority will generally be at a discount to the prevailing  market 
price as provided in the exemption order(s).

Rogers acquired approximately 9.6 million Class  B shares at an average  price 
of approximately $36.32  per share under  its previous NCIB  which expired  on 
February 23, 2013.
