After two decades of talking sports, Sportsnet personality Sid Seixeiro is leaving the Tim & Sid show to become the new co-host of Breakfast Television on Citytv.
Seixeiro will begin waking up audiences alongside current co-host Dina Pugliese and the rest of the BT family starting March 10.
“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,” said Seixeiro, whose final co-host appearance on the Tim & Sid show will come February 26.
“I’ve always been curious to explore other areas of the business and this was a unique opportunity that I couldn’t pass up.”
Over the next few weeks, Seixeiro will be seen on both Breakfast Television and Tim & Sid ahead of his full time arrival.
“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,” said Micallef. “While it is one door closing, it is also the opening of a new window of opportunity for myself and the show.”
Micallef will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET timeslot on Sportsnet television and radio alongside a rotating panel of friends of the show until further details are announced.
