Jo Good has worked for the BBC for 16 years, an award winning breakfast show host and journalist, first for BBC South East and then for BBC Radio London.
Today Jo hosts BBC Radio London's afternoon show Monday to Friday 1-4pm and discusses the issues that London is talking about. Jo enjoys taking time to look at London’s lesser known characters accompanied by a great choice of music. Saturday morning Jo presents BBC London 94.9’s guide to entertainment and leisure in the capital that includes films, theatre, music and family attractions.
Jo reports for BBC London’s Inside Out and has been a regular paper reviewer for Sky News. She narrated The Kate Moss Years for Channel 5, two one hour documentaries.
As a reflection of Jo’s love of dogs and particularly her bulldog Matilda, Thursday’s BBC Radio London radio show is host to Barking Hour, a one hour dog show and the only dog show presented on radio in the world. An incredibly popular show, Jo teams up with Anna Webb, the Barking Blondes.
The Barking Blondes have published their book the Barking Blondes which recounts tales of their lives with their dogs and how their boyfriends fit in or struggle to fit in!
The Barking Blondes were weekly dog/pet experts on the Alan Titchmarsh show. They were also asked to take part in ob doc and cult TV series A Different Breed for Sky 1.
JoAnne Good started her career training as an actress at The Rose Bruford College Of Speech and drama. She is best remembered for playing Carol Sands in Cross Roads for 4 years but is also recognised for her classic appearances in Only Fools and Horses. Other credits are Casualty, The Bill, Silent Witness, Auf Wiedersehen Pet, Dempsey and Makepeace, Dave Allen, Shine on Harvey Moon and Doctors.
She is a huge fan of Astanga Yoga and once interviewed the MP, Alan Clarke whilst both of them were stood on their heads. Alan marvelled at the fall against gravity in this pose whilst Jo noted how they both resembled a pair of wrinkly Sharpeis dogs!
