“Rogers Communications History

Our goal is to easily connect Canadians with what’s next. Canadian entrepreneurial legend Ted Rogers founded our company in 1960, and its roots were in radio with CHFI. Over five decades, Ted grew Rogers into the converged media and communications powerhouse it is today.

Today we’re still committed to his ‘best is yet to come’ philosophy, always delivering what’s next to transform the way you live and work every day.”
