CJAD, CBC Montreal win RTNDA awards

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.

Global Quebec wins RTNDA award (also: CTV Montreal, CBC Montreal)

Top story: Summer begins!

Global Quebec is running giant ads with Jamie Orchard’s face on them praising the regional network for winning an award by RTNDA Canada. Indeed, Global Quebec did win the Bert Cannings award for best newscast (well, one of many Bert Cannings awards given out this year) for a newscast about “Transit Strike Day!” (yes, with the exclamation mark) last year. This was, of course, before Global Quebec was gutted into the embarrassing shell of a newscast it is now.

Meanwhile, it should be noted that the competition won more awards, two each for CBMT (CBC Montreal) and CTV Montreal.

On the radio side, CBC Montreal won three awards, and CJAD won one.

Oh, one more thing: these are all regional awards. Only CBC Radio Montreal won an award on the national level, unlike, say, CBC Saskatchewan which won three.

But hey, don’t let that stop you from patting yourselves on the back.
