Rocketboom Saga: Colan Replaces Congdon, Who Signs with Endeavor

New Rocketgirl

Rocketboom executive producer Andrew Baron has hired former MTV Europe VJ (and former music/DJ curator at Table 50) Joanna Colan to replace Amanda Congdon, the Huffinton Post's "Eat The Press" reports (via Micro Persuasion). She (Amanda) says she was pushed out; he (Andrew) says she quit to go to Hollywood. Colan, originally from England, "looks strangely like" Congdon, according to HuffPo. She is scheduled to debut on the popular video blog Monday morning, July 10.

Meanwhile, Micro Persuasion's Steve Rubel reports that Congdon has signed with the Endeavor Agency (no, not that one), which represents TV and film stars such as Lisa Kudrow, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler. Apparently, Interpublic Group owns a small stake in the firm's marketing arm.
