TORONTO (Reuters) - Telecom and media group Rogers Communications Inc swung to a second-quarter profit on Tuesday, helped by subscriber and revenue growth.

Rogers, the owner of Canada's biggest wireless carrier, said it earned C$301 million, or 47 Canadian cents per share, in the three months ended June 30.

That compares to a loss of C$56 million, or 9 Canadian cents per share, in the same period a year earlier.
