••3. Consistency of the profitability

Mario Gabelli Comments on Rogers Communications Inc
Rogers Communications Inc.

Rogers also has a substantial media business that operates radio stations, television networks (including The Shopping Channel), magazines, and trade publications, the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team, and interests in the Toronto Maple Leafs (NHL) and Raptors (NBA).
