- The Québec radio and music circles lose a builder -
MONTRÉAL, Oct. 4, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell Media mourns the death today of exceptional radio expert and deeply beloved colleague André Lallier, Content Director of ÉNERGIE Montréal 94.3 and CHOM 97 7, after a courageous battle against cancer. He was 52 years old.
"Our entire team today lost an irreplaceable professional and a valued friend," said Martin Spalding, Vice-President and General Manager, Local Radio and TV, Québec. "Thanks to his love for radio and music and his total dedication to the success of the stations where he worked over the years, André has left an indelible mark on our entire industry. On behalf of everyone at Bell Media, I wish to salute the memory of André and offer my sincere condolences to his spouse Annie, son Alex, and his family and many friends."
Born in Montréal in 1963, André Lallier joined CKMF (now ÉNERGIE Montréal 94.3) in 1983 and was instrumental in making it one of the most renowned radio stations in the Montréal and Québec radio landscapes. During his remarkable career spanning over three decades at Radiomutuel, then Astral and Bell Media, he built an enviable reputation as a radio professional with unparalleled vision, passion, and integrity.
Friends and colleagues will be welcomed by his family at the Sainte-Thérèse Complex of Les Résidences Funéaires Goyer (105, Desjardins Blvd. E.) on Saturday, October 17 from 1-4 p.m. and are invited to a celebration in his honour from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
