MONTREAL – Quebec television host and producer Julie Snyder is heading back to Radio-Canada to host a radio show on Sundays.
Snyder, a well-known talk show host and player in Quebec culture, worked on CBC’s French-language network in the 1990s.
This summer, she’ll host “5 a 7 aux Iles avec… Julie” live from Iles-de-la-Madeleine, starting July 2.
It will be her first stint hosting a radio show in her 30-year career.
Snyder, who was behind some of Quebec’s most popular shows, was well-known in political circles in recent years because of her then-relationship with former Parti Quebecois leader Pierre Karl Peladeau.
Peladeau’s Quebecor Inc. (TSX:QBR.B) owns TVA, Radio-Canada’s rival network.
