Passion for Sports Media

Brian Bileski’s career highlights read like a sports fan’s dream: spending a day in the Toronto Maple Leafs locker room, covering the 2010 Olympics, hanging out with basketball superstars Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony, and meeting professional golf’s finest players.

As producer for Canada’s top sports networks – TSN, Leafs TV, NBA TV – Brian has come face to face with top athletes from the world of golf, hockey and basketball. Since 2008, he has been the Producer of SCOREGolf on TSN. Brian is also the Executive Producer of CCMC Sports which works directly with TSN and Rogers Sportsnet.

One of the most popular segments Brian has created for SCOREGolf is match play featuring top NHL players facing each other. Not only are these segments fun to produce, but they inject new life into the current sports programming model, according to Brian.

“With the accessibility of real time updates, the traditional sports desk shows are becoming less and less relevant. The future of sports broadcast programming is combining star power with cool events. It’s time the broadcast world started to do things differently to draw viewers,” who remains as enthusiastic about his industry as the year he entered Sheridan’s then-new New Media program.

The Mississauga native earned a Business and Economics degree from Western University, and worked for a year before realizing he loved the media. “I considered lots of places across Canada but I didn’t need to go further than 10 minutes from the house I grew up in to get the right education. I loved every moment I spent at Sheridan; that year had a tremendous impact on where I am today.”

Brian advises students to “pick a career that you are passionate about. Work harder than anybody you know and then work harder.” When you graduate, he adds, “Dream and rise – higher still. Hopefully you will be satisfied because tomorrow awaits another day, another dime, another challenge, and that’s what life is all about.”
