About the Host

Amanda Putz is a proud Saskatchewanian who relocated to Ontario upon graduation from University of Regina's Journalism School. After spending several years in T.V. at CBC News Network (then Newsworld) in Toronto, she relocated to Ottawa to host Bandwidth in 2004. In the midst of that season she began the nationally-broadcast musical match-making show Fuse (2005-2008). During a brief sojourn in Hong Kong from '06 to '07 Amanda worked as a host for RTHK's English radio station.

She has now returned to host and produce Bandwidth and is also the music columnist on Ottawa Morning Thursdays at 8:15. Amanda has guest-hosted Q, Definitely Not the Opera, Sounds Like Canada, and CBC Radio 3.
