Our readers seem to be as loyal to their local radio and TV stations and talents of choice as they are in their reading habits*. The #1 spots in all radio, TV and print categories are unchanged from last year, though there’s been notable movement elsewhere in the Top 5s: Concordia radio station and AM underdog CJLO has risen from #5 to #3 in Best Radio Station; CJLO’s Ashes to Ashes made it to #4 Best Radio Show; and the Evelyne Brochu army pushed the actress into the Best TV Personality category, where Infoman’s Jean-René Dufort also appears for the first time.

The Internet and social media are much more volatile terrain, with loads of newcomers joining the survey regulars: Reddit and Yulorama move into the Best Website category, while Best Snapchat features porn-generation social media star David Hener (#1) and Nick Younes — aka Yung Maducci, who campaigned heavily during this year’s Best of MTL polling; Best Instagram welcomes Worst of MTL chroniclers Fucknomtl (#2) and burlesque performer (and last year’s Best of MTL cover co-star) Audrey Ivory (#5); and in Best Podcast, the foodies behind Cadeau & Janco Wednesdays @ Lunch get enough love to propel them to #3.

*(As always, we thank our readers for the love in Best Newspaper, Magazine, Website and social media categories. We’re everywhere!)
