New Host Announcement


2015.05.12 – We are very excited to announce our new host for Secret Setlist!

Sarah Hoyles is in tune with the local music community and will bring her experience and amazing energy to the show.

Sarah is a producer and host on CKUA as well as with her own independent podcast, Pet Sounds. Sarah began her journalism career with the CBC where she worked as a daily news reporter in Moncton, NB and then became a producer/contributor on the national program, Definitely Not The Opera as well as on regional current affairs shows in Alberta and Manitoba. Sarah has not always been on the radio, she’s done Communications for the Art Gallery of Alberta and the Ottawa-based United Nations Association in Canada.

When she’s not at work, Sarah writes music reviews for Earshot Magazine, serves on the Latitude 53 Gallery board, volunteers with the local garden project, The LIVINGbridge and is involved in a collective of Edmonton zine makers who create printed matter about everything in this northern, land-locked island town, that’s not at the mall.

Sarah received a Journalism degree from the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia and a Honours degree in Drama from the University of Alberta.

We welcome Sarah to the Secret Setlist team and are extremely excited to work with her to bring another round of amazing Edmonton talent to Telus Optik and online!

Only 4 more days until the kick-off of Secret Setlist 2015 at the Mercury Room on May 15th! Tickets are available now so be sure to get yours – follow the links above.
