Whatever happened to …. ?

While watching the TV in the waiting room at the GP’s today, i was confronted by what is known as Good Health Television.. basically a “channel” of segments discussing various health topics.

While this concept is nothing new, it has apparently been playing in doctors waiting rooms for 15 years, I was surprised to see a somewhat familiar face presenting some of the segments… former Network Ten newsreader of the 1980s, Jo Pearson.

Ms Pearson (and weatherman husband Rob Gell) made headlines when they packed up from ATV10 Melbourne to go to Nine with a rumoured $1m contract in 1987. Rob continued with Nine until only recently (and is now appearing on Seven News in Melbourne), but Jo had less success at Nine hosting ill-fated late-afternoon shows such as Live At Five and Body & Soul, before returning to ATV10 perhaps a bit wiser in 1991. After two years back at Eyewitness News, she vanished again and then re-surfaced on ABC‘s TVTV program.

    About say 30 years ago, I think her name was Tracey in USA fell down deep into a narrow well and got stuck solid. It was worldwide news for days. I think or hope she was rescued. What happened to her. It would be good to be revisited
