The RTNDA (which used to stand for something but now doesn’t) has announced the winners of its annual broadcasting awards.
Two of them are from Montreal:
- Charlie Edwards Award (Spot News) – CJAD 800 for Montreal North Riots
- Sam Ross Award (Editorial/Commentary) – CBC News: Montreal for Daycare Fees
I also note that one winner is the A-Channel station in Windsor, which CTV decided to pull the plug on until Shaw came in to rescue it.

You’re memory must be shorter than mine. Who is this gang and when did their prizes stand for something (and while you’re at it, what did they stand for?)
For the record, it’s “Radio-Television News Directors Association”. It’s actually a pretty big thing in broadcast news.
