WHO IS JAN FRAN?

Jan Fran was once described by a very drunk girl in the line to the toilet at a music festival as, “that girl who talks about politics on the internet,” which to-date remains the most accurate description of what Jan does.

Jan is a journalist and TV presenter who currently hosts The Feed on SBSVICELAND and guest-hosts The Project on Network Ten. She is also the host of the podcasts, Sexism and the City and The Few Who Do.

Jan has shot and produced documentaries from all over the world for SBS TV.  She is a regular commentator on Sky News and the ABC and has appeared on programs such as Q&A, ABC Breakfast, Studio 10, Insiders, Lateline, The Drum and Triple J’s Hack.

Jan is an ambassador for Plan International Australia where she advocates for women and girls and her strong reporting on women’s issues earned her a 2018 Walkley nomination for Women’s Leadership in Media.

In 2010 Jan moved to Bangladesh where she spent one year living in Dhaka and working as a communications specialist for UNICEF.  She has also lived in Lebanon, France and Uganda. She speaks three languages, most of them terribly.

Jan will probably emcee your event if you ask nicely and will definitely emcee your event if you pay her. Jan likes money!

Writing about myself in the third person is hard you guys.
