Best of MTL 2013: Media


Download Cult MTL Issue 9 to read the expanded Best of MTL 2013 list!

Nowhere in Montreal is the whole two solitudes thing more apparent than in our city’s media. Judging by your choices in categories like Best Radio Show (CKUT’s Venus Radio), Best TV Station (CTV) and Best Newspaper (Cult MTL—thanks, dudes!), you are, startlingly enough, a largely anglophone bunch. Nonetheless, you picked Urbania—a French-language culture publication that earlier this year dedicated an issue to us square-heads—as your favourite magazine, and Radio-Canada’s Patrice Roy and Véronique Cloutier cracked Best Newscaster and Best Local TV Personality, respectively. As for radio, though he spent a few years in Alberta, you never lost your love for Terry Dimonte, and you’re apparently fans of Team 690 stalwart Mitch Melnick, too. And because we know there’s no end to your love for Mutsumi Takahashi (Best Local Newscaster, Best Local TV Personality), we reached out to her to find out what she thinks of you.
