His celebrity interviews were published in the Sun chain across Canada and were picked up by publications in Britain, the US, and Australia.

After 20 years, he retired but Postmedia asked him to continue reviewing theatre for the Calgary Herald. He is currently the only full-time theatre reviewer in Calgary.  Louis reviewed films for the Don, Joanne, and Coach Show on LITE96 FM Radio for more than 20 years and has been reviewing films for CTV Calgary News at NOON for 15 years. He reviews films each Friday for the Ottawa radio station 88.5 LIVE FM.
