City Montreal makes key behind the scenes hire in Feldman

When City Montreal's new Breakfast Television program debuts at the end of August,  head man Bob Babinski promises a show with lots of fun. Well, he has just made one heck of a hire in Jeffrey Feldman as a supervising producer.

Feldman has spent the past nine years as a  producer for CTV's eTalk, using his endless array of contacts to bring the show everything and anything occurring in Montreal.    "During my time on the show, I have had the great fortune of working with outstanding people both at CTV Montreal and, of course, the dynamic team behind Canada's number one entertainment show," he said in an email to friends and family. " Not a single day passed when I didn’t consider myself tremendously fortunate to be in a position to meet such interesting people from all walks of life and all over the planet.  I still can’t believe I was able to work with, and get to know, members from two former Canadian Prime Ministers’ families."

Of course Feldman is talking about eTalk co-host Ben Mulroney and former Quebec correspondent Sophie Gregoire, the wife of Justin Trudeau.

Feldman says he met just about every A-lister, living legend,  actor , Olympian, singer, comedian, super model  - even royal family members.   " I have infinite appreciation for the publicists, agents, directors of marketing,  assistants,  interns plus the other unsung heroes who surround all these personalities and big ticket events on a daily basis to make things actually happen.  I will be forever enriched and humbled having experienced these moments." 

Feldman is actually a Torontonian who came here as a publicist, moved back to his hometown,  and then returned in September 2006 to take the eTalk gig.

Babinski has signed a star. 

We can now report that Olympic diving champion Alexandre Despatie and CBC's Joanne Vrakas will co-host the show, with  Beaconsfield's Wilder Weir serving as the roving reporter, He also a co-host of the Montreal Connected sports program. Here are all of the details courtesy of the magnificent Fagstein blog.
