The local media came out in force to cover the Alouettes’ Grey Cup parade, especially on TV, which really surprised me.
I was stuck in the crowd, but here are some photos I got of the TV media covering the party afterward.
The CTV tent
Brian Wilde with Damon Duval's insanely hot wife.
CTV and RDS tents side by side
Ken Connors in the Global TV tent (Global covered the parade mostly form their studio). The TVA tent is on the right.
Even cameramen need a break sometimes.
Production people contort themselves in odd ways to stay out of the camera's view
Wilde interviews Paul Lambert moments before he goes on stage. Lambert's a Montreal-born anglo so naturally a favourite of the CFCF crew.
Lambert taps Randy Tieman on the back to say hi. Alouettes players are much closer to the few reporters who cover them than Canadiens players are to the media circus that follows them everywhere.
The RDS crew turn around to watch the player introductions on stage. Good God those jackets are awful.
I believe that's Pierre Vercheval (a former Alouette) signing a football.
Rue Frontenac was there
Brian Wilde and a fan

Little-known fact: Due to CBC budget cuts, Michel Godbout doubles as a delivery man for Quiznos.
Just kidding. He's a serious reporter man, after all.
Tania Krywiak gives a thumbs up at someone spelling her name correctly.

I see you on TV. Can we be friends?
There’s this thing about local TV people, people want their pictures taken with them. I’ve never quite understood the concept.
But hey, as long as they’re all having fun, who am I to judge? I go to parties and take pictures of TV reporters. We’re all strange in our own way.
