Regular readers of this blog will know and more than likely watch the various episodes of RocketBoom that I have posted. To be honest, until a header from this blog was used on RocketBoom – I hadn’t heard of it (shame on me). But most people, myself included, found there way to the RB site and started to watch hours of these Vblog reports made by this stunning, intelligent, sharp witted and good humoured Lancastrian Joanne Colan.
Well it’s not been lost on many of you that both I have stopped posting RocketBoom vids and that Joanne had all but disappeared.
But who is she? well, while the young of this world seem hell bent on being a celebrity without reason, The Joanne’s of this world are the few talented people with enough intellect to be by far a cut above the norm. Fluent in several languages Joanne cut her teeth in the business the hardway;
From 2000 to 2004, Joanne joined MTV Networks Europe. She wrote, co-produced and hosted shows such as the Top 20 Countdown, MTV News, MTV Movie Special and hosted live, international events including the MTV Europe Music Awards, MTV Presents and MTV’s Winterjam. As a face of the pan-European MTV brand, Joanne’s shows were broadcast to over 124 million households in over 50 countries and territories.
Joanne generated top ratings for the network. Responsible for MTV’s European Top 20, she created a new identity for the chart show and won ‘Best European Satellite Music Program’ voted by viewers in the What Satellite UK & Europe TV Poll.
Joanne also fronted MTV’s World Aids Day Campaigns, traveling to the US and South Africa for MTV’s news and social awareness divisions.
In 2003, Joanne was instrumental in launching MTV France, commuting to Paris weekly to host the flagship show, MTV Crew, the first ever to be locally produced live in French on MTV France.
Joanne has worked with the BBC as host, writer, researcher and production coordinator, for both BBC Radio & Television. In France, Joanne hosted the French version of the BBC’s long running cult music show Top of the Pops, for French music channel M6 Music.
Joanne’s “other hat” is an AADP board certified Holistic Health Counselor from Columbia University and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She produces short form series for healthy living multi-media network Lime.com. Joanne is on the Holistic Health Committee at the New Design High School in Manhattan along with Dr Raphael Kellman MD of the Kellman Center for Progressive Medicine and Prof James Fraser of NYU Dept of Humanities & Social Sciences in the Professions.
Sadly, for all of us, our daily lighthearted and sometimes serious relief has drawn to a close and so here is RocketBoom’s thankyou to Joanne
HOWEVER…. do not dispair yon readers – TWBrit has it on very good authority indeed, that Joanne’s endeavors are far from over, as such, the moment there is something to report or promote – We will do our very best to bring it to you.
