CORRECTED-Canada's Rogers Communications to cut 200 jobs in media unit

(Corrects Jan. 25 story to say 200, not 400, jobs cut)

TORONTO, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Rogers Communications Inc said on Monday it would cut around 200 media jobs starting in February, blaming a weak ad market, shifting audience habits and competition from global rivals.

The Toronto-based company said the jobs affected were in conventional TV, radio, publishing and back-office operations and accounted for 4 percent of the media arm’s workforce.

Its media group provides around 15 percent of revenue at Rogers, which also sells phone, television and Internet services.
