McDonald (pictured) stated, “Creating and running Taj TV/ Ten Sports was a dream come true, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I was blessed to have a fantastic team to work with, strong and supportive shareholders, and a fair dollop of luck. It will be hard not to be part of the everyday buzz that surrounds Ten Sports, but I am excited that the shareholders of Taj TV would like me to continue in an advisory role and be engaged in various projects.”
