Television columnist Louis Cassino dies

Columnist Louis Cousineau, who brought rain and shine to the world of Quebec television, died at the end of the day on Monday, according to the newspaper “La Presse”, where he worked for more than 40 years.

For decades, his critiques of television programs offered to Quebecers have left the industry impatiently waiting to see whether a new program hitting the screens will be applauded or stonewalled.

In one of his last interviews, given to Marc Labreche at the ICI premiere in June 2020, Louis Cousineau laughed, “I have to think I'm doing it for fun.

Ms Cassino took a prominent position in TV criticism, an area largely obscured by the French-language media when she first became interested.

“Everyone said, 'Ah, TV is good for fat people,'” […] While in English newspapers […]There were very funny, very funny TV dailies,” he told Mark LaBrech.

“I tried to be fair in my columns, as well,” she quips.

After retiring from “La Presse” in December 2009 following serious health problems, Louis Cassino took up his pen again in the following months and signed 50 columns published by Quebecor-owned “TV Hebdo”.
