Award-winning, entertainer, Ella Hooper, is the host of SCA’s new music podcast, Front & Centre, and will also be heard on Triple M 90’s as workday host.
The Front & Centre podcast and the Triple M 90’s station are both available via the LiSTNR app.
Having spent more than 20 years in the spotlight as frontwoman of Australian band, Killing Heidi, Ella has forged an enviable media career across TV and radio with her authenticity, broad appeal and as a respected pop culture vulture.
Front & Centre is where a spotlight will be shone on the biggest names in music and Ella will share their stories and work through exclusive interviews kicking off with artists including Lorde, Benee, Green Day, The Living End, The Killers and Imagine Dragons.
From 2012 -2015, Ella hosted SCA’s Top 20 Countdown and in 2012 earned an ACRA for Best Newcomer.
She says, “I’m thrilled to be back on air and in the exciting digital audio world with LiSTNR,
bringing fresh content via the podcast and am relishing the chance to wax lyrical about my favourite musical decade, the 90’s.”
SCA Head of Music, Mickey Maher, says, “As an artist herself Ella will bring a unique insight and storytelling ability to her Front & Centre features and as the front person of one of Australia’s biggest bands of the 90’s no one is better placed to host workdays on Triple M 90’s. We are delighted that someone with Ella’s charm, quick wit, intelligence and musical knowledge has joined our ranks to front not one, but two, music projects for us.”
