Sarah Zaslaw is the host of Midday Music and The ASO on GPB. She joined GPB Radio’s music department in 1998. Her first weekly show, A Musical Offering, won the Georgia Association of Broadcasters’ Gabby Award for best locally produced program in 2000. Since that year she has shared classical music and lunchtime company with thousands across the state on Midday Music.

Her 2006 Mozart special K is for Koechel was picked up by stations nationwide. In 2008, Sarah also took on hosting The ASO on GPB, for which she has interviewed such artists as Joshua Bell, Alan Gilbert, Yefim Bronfman and Hilary Hahn.

Sarah grew up in Ithaca, New York and started violin at age four. Her first radio experience came during college, at WHRB in Cambridge, Mass. She has a bachelor of arts in European history from Harvard and a master of arts from the University of Michigan.

She worked for a while as a book editor before moving to Atlanta and putting her interests in music, languages and communications back to use in classical radio.
