Jo Good has worked for the BBC for 18 years, an award winning breakfast show host and journalist for BBC Radio London and now the weeday afternoon presenter. Jo discusses the issues that London is talking about and enjoys taking time to look at London’s lesser known characters.
As a reflection of Jo’s love of dogs and particularly her bulldog Matilda, Thursday’s BBC Radio London show is host to Barking Hour, a one hour dog segment and the only dog show presented on radio in the world. An incredibly popular show, Jo teams up with Anna Webb, of the Barking Blondes.
Jo has a newly launched podcast Dogs and The City which is a 30 minute walk in London each week with a celebrity and their dog. Guests to date have included Julian Clary and Katrina from Katrina and the Waves. The first episode caught Katrina offering to pick up Matilda's waste should we say!
2019 has seen Jo launch her own YouTube Channel #Middleagedminx and proven there is a big interest for 50 plus age groups to watch. It's not just for kids! Go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPdKVL2QgDfBXcIW3jC3B2Q
Jo has published the Barking Blondes with best friend Anna Webb which recounts tales of their lives with their dogs and how their boyfriends fit in or struggle to!
The Barking Blondes have been weekly dog/pet experts on This Morning and the Alan Titchmarsh show. They were also asked to take part in ob doc and cult TV series A Different Breed for Sky 1.
Jo reports for BBC London’s Inside Out with recent topics as diverse as First World War Farmers and brown paper bags.
JoAnne Good started her career training as an actress at The Rose Bruford College Of Speech and drama.

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!
