CANADIAN SPORTS TALK-SHOW HOST SAYS GOODBYE

It's time to say farewell to one half of the amazing Tim and Sid duo. On Thursday evening's broadcast, Sid Seixeiro announced he was leaving the Sportsnet program after nine years to join a Toronto morning show, Breakfast Television.

«It's been a dream to work 20 years in the sports industry, especially alongside Tim Micallef, and express my passion and love for sports on a daily basis. However, I've always been curious to explore other areas of the business and this was a unique opportunity that I couldn't pass up. I'm so excited to begin this next adventure with Dina and the BT family,» said Seixeiro. «While I look forward to my next chapter, this news is truly bittersweet for me. It has been an honour coming to work and talking sports with Tim for all of these years. I couldn't have asked for a better partner. To the entire show's crew and our incredible Tim & Sidizens, thank you.»

Sid will continue to work on the show until February 26th, before starting up with Breakfast Television on March 10th. The "Tim & Sid" show will carry on, with Tim Micallef and rotating guest hosts, until a new permanent co-host is found.

«I could not be happier for Sid as he embarks on this new phase of his career,» said Micallef. «We have had a unique partnership for almost 20 years, and while I will miss his candor, encyclopedic sports knowledge and often unbridled passion, I know this is the right next step for him. I do, however, share my deepest sympathies with the craft services team at BT. That man is an animal. While it is one door closing, it is also the opening of a new window of opportunity for myself and the show. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a book overflowing with ideas and I can't wait to use this fresh start to work on some of them with a bunch of my talented colleagues at Sportsnet.»

Tim & Sid first aired as a radio show from 2011-2013, before making the jump to television in 2013, when their radio show was broadcasted on theScore. In 2015, Sportsnet announced that Tim & Sid would re-launch as a television program, bringing "edu-tainment' to sports fans across Canada.
