The Arisa & Ara Show
Arisa Cox is a certified pop culture junkie best known as the host of Big Brother Canada. In her previous lives, she spent years roving red carpets around the world, running from polar bears and dodging tear gas on both sides of the camera for E!, CBC and Entertainment Tonight Canada, even popping up in a Jonas Brothers Disney movie. Way back in the dark ages (aka 2001), Arisa took a break from Journalism school at Carleton University for U8TV:The Lofters – Canada’s first big reality series – where she lived on camera for a full year. Nuts. Now she’s a mom of two little ones and a recent Edmontonian, THRILLED to have joined the Bounce team spreading goodness to the whole city every morning with Ara, her brother from another mother.
What kind of a name is Ara? Who knows. His parents smoked some funny things back in the day. Ara knew early on that entertainment was in his blood…fueling his Sasquatch body. From doing fake radio shows in his bedroom, to performing all sorts of ridiculous routines for whoever was in earshot, this walking talking singing rapping anomaly eventually found his niche and evolved into one badass radio dude. At least that’s what his Mama tells him. Parents don’t lie. Often. Get ready for interactive mornings filled with fun, drama, laughs, shocking confessions, special guests from Music and TV, and Cheez Whiz. Lots of Cheez Whiz. Tell your Mom, tell your friends, and fo sho tell your weirdo neighbour down the street. Half Ewok. Half maniac. All sexy. It’s about to get crazy up in here… email@example.com
