Media News Digest: Broadcasting review begins, labour deals at TVA & Radio-Canada, Express d’Outremont shuts down

Editor’s note: In the interests of maintaining my sanity and reducing the amount of time I put into these things, I’m limiting their scope to news that directly affects Canada (though I may occasionally add international news of particular interest to journalism). If you’re interested in getting international media news, you can check out sources like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, CNN, the New York Post, Variety.

    I am going to miss hearing Bob Cole. I will never forget him calling the game between the Flyers and the Russians when Russia left the ice because of the Flyers’ rough tactics. He said “They’re going home” in a very incredulous tone.

    That’s fair enough. I love hearing about international news too, but there is plenty enough to mention in this country alone!

      I appreciate the blog and your highlighting of various international issues . Your spotlighting of local issues is however more vital so I’m happy to take the latter without (as much of) the former . Hope this maintains your sanity .

    Bob Cole should have left the broadcasts more than a decade ago. Perhaps the worst announcer still in the game, and definitely one who is rarely more than tangentially aware of what’s happening on the ice.

    I agree with you on 3D audio – it’s always a crock.
