Not content to have a regular summer job during high school and CEGEP, Christine Long worked in photography in Banff, Alberta and London, England, before heading to McGill University.
Christine obtained a BA in English and Communications as well as a Certificate in public relations management. While she studied full-time she decided to challenge herself by joining the Canadian Forces. Between school and the Forces she also worked as a DJ at CHOM-FM. At 18 years of age, she was the youngest and the only female DJ in the city. Christine's DJ career at CHOM lasted eight years.
To take a break from late night rock 'n' roll, Christine followed her wanderlust again and moved to Tokyo, Japan for two years where she worked in English news radio at NHK, and as a DJ at WAVE FM. Before heading home, Chris travelled extensively throughout Asia for six months.
Christine has worked at CTV Montreal for the past 20 years. As the arts and entertainment reporter/producer, her job takes her to Montreal's hot spots and gives her the opportunity to meet both local and international artists.
