About Rudy
SO WHO IS RUDY BLAIR?  Tough question to answer and especially when I have to keep this short but let's try  anyway.  I've been in the Broadcasting Industry for almost 30 years in both Radio and Television.  23 of those years was with 680News as the Music & Entertainment Reporter.  During that time I've interviewed some of the biggest artists in music including Beyonce, Jay Z, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Lorde, Gordon Lightfoot, Tony Bennett and Tim McGraw to name a few.  I was there for many of these artists at the beginning of their careers and helped give them their first national interview spotlight including Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Michael Buble, Avril Lavigne and The Tenors.  I've estimated I've interviewed over 7,000 artist and that's a lot to remember.  I've covered several big events multiple times including The Grammy, Junos, Much Music Video Awards,The Canadian Screen Award and Canada's Walk Of Fame.  I've also been lucky winning several honours including 16 Radio-Television News Directors Association National and Regional Awards, The Harry Jerome Award, inducted into the Humber College Radio Broadcasting Hall Of Fame,The Vaughan Road Academy Hall of Fame and received an Honorary Degree from Humber College.  I've appeared on several televisions shows, reported for CityNews and had my own Rogers Television show, ON THE MIC WITH RUDY BLAIR where I not only interviewed many of the top music acts in the business but also new indie artists and helping them get exposure.  I could really keep going but there isn't room to put everything in on my career. What I can say is this website RUDY BLAIR ENTERTAINMENT MEDIA will be a continuation of everything I've done  in the past to help promote music acts of the future.  I'll also be interviewing and promoting upcoming events,chat with stars of the stage,movies,sports,politics and the every day person who has an interesting story.

Some call this group based in Toronto a Folk band. Some call them a Country band, some call them and Alternative band while others call them a Pop/Rock band. BUT everyone agrees when it comes to their music, they're just a great band of musicians, singers.songwriters and performers.(They were recently named "Top 10 New Artists" in the country in CBC’s 2015 Searchlight contest).
