New Rocketboom Host 2.0: Joanne Colan?

The Huffington Post reports that Andrew Baron has tapped former MTV Europe VJay Joanne Colan to become the new anchor of Rocketboom, which will return July 10. Having never seen Joanne in action nor even really heard of her until today, I cannot comment on what she brings to the table. Needless to say, if she’s a former MTV VJay, then she’s probably pretty talented.

What I’m really waiting for is to find out whether or not Amanda Congdon has accepted Jason Calacanis’ offer.

  1. She does look a bit prettier than Amanda, but then again Rocketboom ( as far as I am concerned ) is not really much of a valuable show. It was always about Amanda pulling off her show and mmaaaaaaaaybe a few mentions on some interesting headlines. Then again, if people like it, it must mean something.

    I’d say that 250,000 viewers a day makes a show pretty valuable, no matter what format it is in. It’s valuable enough that they’ve been able to pull in huge advertising dollars.

    Amanda was the lifeblood of the show, of course. But I, and others, still watched for the headlines. Joanne is very attractive, but the thing that attracted most Rocketboom viewers wasn’t Amanda’s looks (though she is stunningly beautiful) — it was her personality and the way she carried herself.

    Thanks for the comment, though!
