TORONTO, February 23, 2023 – Woodbine Entertainment today announced that long-time on-air personality Chad Rozema will be leaving the organization to pursue a new opportunity.

On behalf of Woodbine and our fans, I would like to thank Chad for his contributions and wish him the best of luck in his new endeavour.”

Rozema has accepted a position as Raceway Manager at Grand River Raceway. His final broadcast will be in late March.
