Réjean Tremblay announces (already) his return to writing topical texts
Last night, big news broke in the world of media and journalism.

We learned, viaan article in La Presse written by Guillaume Lefrançois, that Réjean Tremblay is leaving the Journal de Montréal after 12 years of service.

Réjean Tremblay will celebrate his 79th birthday towards the end of August (on the 24th), but it’s not yet time to retire.

That’s hardly surprising, given his passion for the sport and his love of what he does. In the La Presse article, we read that he has “projects that will be confirmed” shortly… And let’s just say we didn’t have to wait long to discover one of them.

The journalist was on BPM Sports this morning to talk about his future. He told Max Lalonde that he’ll be taking on a brand-new challenge in the near future, to be announced by Alexandre Panneton (CEO of BPM Sports), Yves Bombardier (Director of Programming at BPM Sports) and Robert Ranger (President of RNC Média).

What’s it all about?

Basically, Réjean Tremblay will write five articles a week (at 6 a.m.) on the BPM Sports website. A brand-new written digital section will obviously be created on the sports radio station’s website, bringing competition to the (already) fierce media field.

We’re talking about texts of around 300 words based on sports news. Réjean Tremblay turned down an offer from the Journal de Montréal to write “one or two pages” in the Saturday edition.

Instead, he wanted the opportunity to be “in the thick of things”, and that’s exactly what he’ll get in his new role at BPM Sports. In the end, he got what he wanted.

Obviously, BPM Sports wants to try new things, and I can’t wait to see what happens. Will Réjean Tremblay be the only writer on the website? Will other station employees be called upon to write articles?

We’ll be keeping an eye on the situation over the coming weeks, because it’s going to be a big challenge.

In bursts

– If he’s happy with his decision, all the better.

– Oh, no.

– Love this.

– Absolutely.

– Cody Fajardo could be in uniform Saturday night.
