Career Profile: TV & Radio Tracker

Have you ever dreamed about a job where you get to liaise between artists and media outlets in TV and radio, and help them get their songs and music videos in rotation?

Well lucky for Hollie Sackett-Reid she gets live her dream every day as she does the Radio Tracking and Promotions at Dale Speaking Ltd.

Hollie grew up in Alberta where she attended highschool in Sherwood Park. She went Northern Alberta Institute of Technology where she studied Radio and Television Arts. She then chose to move to Toronto and to attend the Harris Institute for the Arts where she specialized in Recording Arts Management. She felt that Toronto would provide more opportunities to network and become involved with the Canadian Music Industry. Hollie gets excited to work with new bands because she gets to see how they go from having no radio ads to becoming more confident in dealing with the media. In ten years Hollie hopes to still be helping artists get the exposure they deserve and facilitating positive entertainment experiences for others.
