Tara Slone

Co-Host, 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 co-host of Hometown Hockey, Tara speaks about her intriguing career path which saw her transition from rock star to broadcaster, and she is right at home bringing star power to your stage, as a host of conference events, gala evenings, and more.

Slone previously co-hosted Breakfast Television Calgary, and is the former lead singer of the Juno-nominated rock group Joydrop. She was also a contestant on Rockstar: INXS, and the host of Sun TV’s Inside Entertainment. In addition, she has appeared in numerous films and television episodes.

The Places That Scare You

It was a circuitous path that has led Tara Slone to the anchor desk of Breakfast Television and then to the co-hosting spot of Hometown Hoceky. From her grueling days on the road with her band, Joydrop, through a very public stint on the CBS reality series, Rockstar: INXS, to Slone’s foray into the world of broadcasting at Sun TV in Toronto, and her journey into the world of motherhood, there has not been a challenge that she has not met head-on. Slone has always gone to the places that scare her, and has NEVER regretted it.

From AC/DC to ABCD

It wasn’t so long ago that Tara Slone was touring North America with her Juno-nominated band, Joydrop, playing dingy rock clubs and staying up way too late. Slone, now the mother of a young daughter, is the cheery co-host of Hometown Hockey – a rather dramatic about-face from her rock ‘n’ roll days. She talks about finding the balance between the past and the present, and the bumpy road in between.
