Wow! Has VOCM Backtalk ever picked up it's game this week.
Move over Q and The Current!
I am not suggesting it needed to, Paddy is top drawer in my books. He calls it as he sees it, his on-line personality is entertaining and engaging, he challenges callers to defend their points of view, he separates the grit from the pith and chaff.
This week Paddy has been joined by Globe & Mail columnist & NL ex-pat Tim Powers.
Tim is a lecturer in the Faculty of Communications at the University of Ottawa. He is also a media commentator, ROB TV, CTV News Net, Tim also writes for The Hill Times newspaper.
Sure he is a Conservative strategist, but you know that up front. He is also Vice-President of Summa Communications. He provides advice to a diverse group of clients in the public and private sector. That is how he pays the bills.
He knows his stuff and has brought along the cream of the crop in Canadian journalism to Backtalk this week.
Every afternoon, a national media star has joined the boys for a chat about politics, the media and the Olympics. It was very insightful to hear how some of the top reporters in the country perceive issues and report the news.
Good on VOCM.
It certainly is great for their listeners across the province!
