A bit about
I'm Sarah, and I'm an entertainment and culture journalist, freelance concert photographer, podcaster, and former radio host working within the GTHA.
While studying for my journalism diploma at Mohawk College, I created weekly live music reviews for the school paper Ignite News, which became the bones of Sarah's Hotspot. My experience includes filming Facebook livestream Q&As for Hamilton Health Sciences, freelancing with Hamilton Rising, The Inlet, The Hamilton Spec, The City of Hamilton's music blog, Exclaim! Media, Sidedoor Magazine, McMaster's CFMU blog, YourNetwork, and Beyond James. I've interviewed Marvel superstar Simu Liu, internationally award-winning artist Josh Tiessen, internet celebrity graphic designer Brandon Lepine, Canadian radio legend Alan Cross, and photographed John-Angus MacDonald of The Trews. I've interned for Hamilton's 900 CHML Radio, Toronto's Exclaim! magazine, and Toronto's Sidedoor magazine.
I've been regularly posting music and arts based content for local artists, including profiles, single or album release interviews, and promotional pieces for upcoming shows for the last four years. In 2020 I started a podcast called HOTSHOTS, which led me to creating a spin-off radio show on INDI 101.5 called HOTSHOTS On Air- which ran for 1.5 years.
