Katie Couric better watch her back 'cause Amanda Congdon's gaining fast


I just watched Ms. Congdon, late of Rocketboom and now with ABCNews.com, in her first segment for her new employer.

Tell you what: all the networks better get out their checkbooks 'cause when word on the street gets out about how entertaining her news is compared to the pap and dreck of prime time broadcasts, some major names are gonna find themselves out looking for work on MSNBC and its ilk.

Love the Steely Dan T-shirt.


I must say I'm not surprised by her ascent: when she left Rocketboom this past July I laughed till I cried reading all the stories where her then-partner, Andrew Michael Baron, went on and on about how Rocketboom would be just fine without her.

Yo, Andrew — Rocketboom was her.

You think anyone would know who Jerry Jones was if he didn't own the Dallas Cowboys?

I don't think so.

I think what everyone really likes about her is ogling what's behind the words "steely dan" on that tight t-shirt. Otherwise I didn't note anything exceptional about her reportage.

I don't know...I really like the way 'boom ended up with Joanne Colan.

Its different, but the same...and I kinda like Joanne's style a little more.

Its weird though, with all of ABCNew's budget, I still like the way that Rocketboom looks over AC's set up. Who'd have thunk.
