Arisa Cox joined Ara as co host of the new 91.7 The Bounce morning show, airing weekdays from 6:00 to 10 a.m. “With her incredibly vibrant character, love of pop music and pop culture, Arisa brings a fresh, new savvy sound to the BOUNCE,” said Russell James, Program Director, 91.7 The BOUNCE. “With the combination of Arisa’s big personality and Ara’s quirky sense of humour, the two will breathe new life into Edmonton morning radio.” Arisa was the host of Canadian reality television series Big Brother Canada, former co-host of E! News Weekend, national arts reporter for CBC News Network, and living on-camera for a year on Canada’s first big reality series, The Lofters.
Whether it was stalking polar bears in the subarctic wilds, or interviewing A-list celebrities on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival, the GRAMMY Awards®, and Cannes, Arisa has travelled across Canada and the globe bringing audiences exciting entertainment and lifestyle stories. A Toronto native, she currently lives in Edmonton with her husband and two children.
Arisa’s co-host Ara joined the station earlier this year, and after dominating afternoon ratings, is now poised to make his mark with Arisa at his side on the new Bounce morning show (set to kick off early July).
Prior to joining The BOUNCE, Ara was heard in Calgary, and on British Columbia airwaves, working on-air on The River in Kamloops and SUN FM in Kelowna. From doing fake radio shows in his bedroom to possessing the most infectious laugh in the history of radio, Ara has a passion for music, entertainment and life.
