Chad Rozema, who worked as an on-air commentator for both standardbred and thoroughbred broadcasts for the Woodbine Entertainment Group, has made the decision to leave the company to spend more time with his family.

Rozema, who began his career as a commentator with HPItv on February 6, 2007, is grateful for having had the opportunity to offer his insight on both breeds, including his work on Bet Night Live, which airs on The Score.

“The past five years have been incredible working for WEG,” said the 32-year-old Rozema. “I was surrounded by fantastic colleagues and met so many great fans whom I will miss seeing every day.

“The WEG broadcast department is second to none and they put so much effort into producing a great product for everyone to enjoy and I am really proud to have been a part of it.”

Rozema, who calls Elmira, Ont. home, appeared in his final Bet Night Live show on Monday.

“On behalf of everyone at WEG, I want to thank Chad for his contribution to our various broadcast platforms, and specifically his critical role in growing our successful Bet Night Live network broadcast,” said WEG Executive VP of Racing Jamie Martin. “We wish him all the best in the future, which I hope includes many trips to the races at Mohawk and Woodbine.”

Chad's a good friend of mine, and he was a terrific on-air personality for harness racing. Here's wishing him all the best with his future endeavours!

WEG loses one good man, but the company and the sport are fortunate to have Jason Portuondo returning to the mix!
