Local updates from the Media Roundup

Here are a few select updates from today’s Media Roundup, written and curated by me this week while Linda is on vacation:

  • 102.3 NOW! Radio (CKNO) continues to lead the pack according to the latest radio ratings released by Numeris.
  • Greg Schmaltz, founding member of the Edmonton Broadcasters Club, died on Thursday, Nov. 28 at the age of 85. He joined CITV-TV in 1974 for the station’s founding and retired in 1997. Schmaltz was inducted in to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Half Century Club in 2007.
  • Publicity Room has joined Calgary-based marketing and PR agency Press + Post, effective immediately. "Publicity Room has rebranded as Press + Post Edmonton becoming the first-of-its-kind contemporary lifestyle marketing agency in Western Canada," wrote Publicity Room founder Janis Galloway.
  • Bashir Mohamed co-hosted Episode 241 of CANADALAND to discuss what happened with the Edmonton Catholic Schools and his interview on 630 CHED (see last week’s Media Roundup for more on this).
  • The first two episodes of the new podcast A Tale of Two Weeklies have been released. Episode 1 focuses on how SEE Magazine and Vue Weekly got started in the early 90s, and Episode 2 looks at the early days of their rivalry.
