Yes, after many shake-ups in recent months and Mr Baron almost having to go back to the drawing board, Rocketboom is back!
Now, in case you missed all thats been happening, here is what I know (which means it’s probably wrong);
The ever wonderful Joanne Colan (previous permanent host) left RB to develop her career and stomp new ground a few months ago. Sadly for us ‘punters’ this left a massive void.
In the mean time The Rocketboom tech crew carried on regardless and the powers that be brought in YouTube supreme Vlogger Caitlin Hill from TheHill88. Now I like Caitlin, but to me personally, and this bares no ill will at all, there was something about Caitlin’s persona that was just too different from Joanne’s. Also, Joanne had not been gone very long at all, so this was a little like a culture shock.
Then Caitlin departed and the RB Tech crew soldiered on.
Around this time Ellie Rountree started doing more ‘field’ vids and I really think Ellie is awesome at what she does. Shame she doesn’t answer email or twitter – but hey, she probably gets too many, actually that’s wrong, we swapped comments about a potato once – hmmm odd.
So…. Then the big news – Andrew Baron announces a huge change for the future of Rocketboom; Rocketboom was throwing open the doors to all for the following – Not one but TWO new presenters needed! One for NYC and the other to be based in LA. The LA post is still to be filled but as of today, the Rocketboom NYC office is back up running and probably fully manned with awesome, multi-million hit YouTuber mememolly at the helm.! Oh and she blogs too right HERE
I think a Vancouver office would be much better, not too far from Seattle and it’s also the Sci-Fi capital of the world (a win win).
Actually, I wonder if they could get Caitlin to do the other office?
Never the less, here is the awesome Molly to introduce herself
