Marie-Ève ​​Tremblay will host her show on 98.5

She was one of public radio's rising stars, but eventually made it to 98.5 where she was able to shine as a host. Marie-Ève ​​Tremblay will occupy the space from 10am to 12pm next fall held by Nathalie Normandeau during the week. The latter, as we learned before the holiday, will form a tandem in another period of time with Luc Ferrandis.


“I've done a lot of exciting things in my career, but I admit that this proposal satisfies me to the highest degree,” Marie-Eve Tremblay told me during an interview at the Cogeco offices.

Marie-Eve Tremblay has been part of the 98.5 team since the fall of 2022. After ten years working in the digital service and on Radio-Canada, she decided to take the plunge by agreeing to become a collaborator with Bernard Drainville.

But she learned the day after the announcement that the broadcaster was leaving the airwaves to return to politics. Finally she teamed up with Luc Ferrandis, who then took his first steps as a host.

Last summer, the heads of 98.5 asked him to host the show that follows the daily morning show. I gave this Radio scriptsA meeting in which we are supposed to find the same colors next August. “the offer [qui conservera le même titre] What I will offer will allow me to keep one foot in the news and the other in social issues. This is what matters most to me. »

Those who have followed Marie-Eve Tremblay for years know that her approach is based on field experiences. To do this, she often relies on suggestions given to her by “ordinary people.” Example ? Recently a truck driver asked him to come with him to the city to observe the behavior of motorists from the point of view of his car.

“I saw a woman driving with a cigarette in one hand, a coffee in the other, and her cell phone on her hip. 'I couldn't believe it,'” she told me.

This broadcaster and journalist, who trained at the Jonquière School of Media Arts and Technology and at UQAM, quickly realized that the best reporting topics had to come directly from the person who would be covering them. But above all, they must be inspired by the reality of citizens.

After training at the exhibition Investigations Where she worked on hot issues affecting municipal politics, she became one of the regular columnists on the Ici Première morning shows (working with Marie-France Bazault, Alain Gravelle and Patrick Masbourian). You are often in touch with your listeners. She listens to their concerns.

When people started saying that work on the old Champlain Bridge would disrupt citizens' lives, I decided to create an interactive map based on the experience of workers downtown and on the Reef-South River.

This taste for reports attached to the listeners' reality drives him to live a range of “social experiments” that fueled the show. Web heartstrings. “I looked for an apartment with my name and an Arabic name,” she says.

Once again, it pasted false nationalistic posters and values ​​bearing on the walls of UQAM. I wake up To test freedom of expression in academia. “I went every day to check with one of the teachers what treatment we were giving to the posters. A Palestinian advocacy group denounced the nationalist posters and posted on social media demanding that my (made-up) conference be canceled because they believed it was racist.”

After that, Marie-Eve Tremblay became one of public radio's podcast record-holders. I gave this extremistA series about people who took extreme positions and turned 180 degrees. SecretsWhere men and women reveal the things they've always kept to themselves, Worst idea of ​​my life: Sugar babyAbout the phenomenon of sites that young women communicate with Sugar daddiesbut in reality they are disguised prostitution networks, and The village: murders, fights, pride In Montreal's Gay Village.

“I like to know what I'm talking about,” she says. I have to go see, I have to go meet people. »

After ten years of working in public radio, Marie-Eve Tremblay received an offer to join the Cogeco family. The breakup with Radio-Canada was amicable. “They tried to stop me, but my idea was made up.”

Seven months before the launch of this new show, I felt that the young host was already overheated. Several wires must be connected. Will there be collaborators? If yes, which ones? How will we engage listeners? All this still needs to be done.

Meanwhile, the person from Chicoutimi is enjoying the moment. It's clearly floating on a cloud. “Think about it, it is a space occupied on different airwaves by exceptional women like Christiane Charette, Catherine Perrin, Marie-France Bazeau, Isabelle Maréchal, Nathalie Normandeau. And they are offering it to me.”
