For the past decade, Hollie Taylor has worked in the Canadian Christian radio and music industries. It was her passion for positive entertainment that initially led her to AM930 CJCA (TouchCanada Broadcasting), It was here where she had the opportunity to help launch 105.9 Shine FM, but in 2006, she began looking for ways to learn more about other areas of the Canadian Christian music industry.
During Hollie’s brief break from her radio career she took an entertainment business management course at Harris Institute for the Arts (Toronto), managed artists, and worked for an independent radio promotion company. It was here that she was able to incorporate what she learned from both the radio and entertainment industries.
Since then Hollie has launched her own entertainment promotions company called Ten16 Entertainment. Ten16 Entertainment is a company committed to the education and promotion of artists pursuing exposure in the Canadian Christian music industry. She is also back working at 105.9 Shine FM on The Morning Spin with Johnny Rocket and is the Founder and President of WIMM Canada.
