Former mayor Denis Coderre is coming to a radio near you.

Coderre will make his broadcasting debut on the popular French-language station 98.5 FM on Monday, on morning man Paul Arcand’s show Puisqu’il faut se lever.

He will start by replacing broadcaster and former Parti Québécois politician Pierre Curzi for a few days while Curzi is away, the station announced on its website Thursday morning.

Coderre will appear with Mario Dumont — another ex-politician — on a segment called Commission Curzi-Dumont, in which the two ex-pols debate issues of the day. The segment airs every morning at 8:30.

On Sunday night, the TVA network will present a TV interview with Coderre on Arcand’s show Conversation secrete. It will start at 9:15 p.m., after the final episode of La Voix.

In an extract posted online, Coderre says he was a broken man after losing the Nov. 5 election to Valérie Plante.

Coderre has kept a low profile since the election, but in recent months he has taken on consulting contracts for the Jewish General Hospital Foundation and Stingray, a Montreal-based multi-platform music and video services provider.
