Television Host/Broadcaster - Advocate for Culture Change in Sport
Most people are lucky to have one successful career, but that’s not the case for actor-turned-rocker-turned-morning show host-turned-hockey broadcaster Tara Slone!
Tara first pursued her passion for music professionally by becoming the lead singer of the Juno-nominated rock group Joydrop, and then as a finalist on the hit CBS series Rockstar: INXS. Tara also appeared in dozens of films, television shows, and stage productions early in her entertainment career.
In 2010 Tara became host of Breakfast Television Calgary, where she spent five years. It was there that she was given the opportunity to work in the world of sports, acting as a regular contributor to Sportsnet, covering the WHL and USports hockey, curling, soccer, and bobsleigh.
For the past 8 years, Tara co-hosted the groundbreaking NHL broadcast Rogers Hometown Hockey alongside Ron MacLean, and helmed the weekly Sportsnet series Top of [HER] Game in 2020 and 2021, focusing on stories of empowered women in the world of sports.
