Media Monday Edmonton: Update #178

Here’s my latest update on local media stuff:

  • Today at City Hall the Christmas Bureau launched its 2015 campaign with the annual Gingerbread House Decorating Challenge for the media. This year I was honored to be a judge for the contest, along with Andrea Chan and a member of Edmonton Fire Rescue Services (Bill, representing Chief Ken Block). It was not easy to pick the winners given all the creative houses that we saw! In the end, these were the winners:

    Best in Social – The Tiffin Box
    Best of Radio – 840 CFCW
    Best of TV – Dinner Television
    Shameless Self-Promotion Award – 95.7 CRUZ FM
    Best in Show – CTV Edmonton
