Interview: BT Toronto - Rogers Hometown Hockey

Tara Slone’s eclectic resume and unique perspective have made her one of the most recognizable faces in the Canadian entertainment industry. The former co-host of Rogers Hometown Hockey with Ron MacLean, Slone speaks about her intriguing career path, which saw her transition from rock star to broadcaster. She is also right at home bringing star power to any stage as a host of conference events, gala evenings, and more.

Slone is nationally recognized as the former co-host of Rogers Hometown Hockey, which ran for eight successful seasons. She was also a regular contributor to Sportsnet’s broadcasts covering WHL and CIS hockey, curling, soccer, and bobsleigh, and hosted their docuseries, Top of [HER] Game, which explored the lives, careers, and accomplishments of sport and culture’s female thought leaders. Prior to this, Slone was a co-host on Breakfast Television Calgary.

Today, Slone works with the San Jose Sharks, creating original video and audio content for their digital platforms, hosting a regular podcast series titled The Undercurrent with Tara Slone, and appearing on select Sharks game telecasts on NBC Sports California.  Before rocking the broadcast world, Slone was rocking the music scene as the lead singer of the Juno-nominated group, Joydrop, and a finalist in the CBS hit series Rockstar: INXS. She has also appeared in numerous films and television episodes.

In 2013, Slone won the Alberta TV and Film award for Best Television Host, and in 2020, she was nominated for the Canadian Screen Award’s Best Host in a Talk Show or Entertainment News Series award for hosting Citytv’s summer concert series Budweiser Stage at Home.

Client reviews

  • Tara did a fantastic job hosting our Awards Gala on October 28th. Overall the feedback we have received regarding Tara as our host was very positive and I think she was instrumental in adding to the increased engagement from our audience. Tara went well beyond in her committed time in our agreement and was very well prepared to host our event.

    I would definitely ask Tara to host our event again!

  • Tara Slone injects true mastery into the role of Master of Ceremonies! I have never been so impressed by anyone’s abilities to step into a role and own it like Tara did for us. We have had a great cast of emcees over the years but each and every one of them pales in comparison to what Ms. Slone was able to achieve. Our goal was to present sixty awards in a two and a half hour gala show – which is no easy feat. Time flew past thanks to Tara’s skilled management of pace, tone and delivery. She was engaging, personable, entertaining and an absolute joy to work with! She made me look like a rock star in front of 1700 guests and I couldn’t be more grateful. I am beyond proud of what Tara accomplished on our behalf, I am ecstatic! I would not only recommend Tara Slone to anyone seeking the quintessential event host, I would dial the phone for them!
