Jan Fran

Jan Fran is a journalist, presenter, emcee and social commentator.

She currently hosts The Feed on SBSVICELAND where she makes the news funny. Jan is a former TV journo-turned-VJ who has shot and produced documentaries from all over the world including Bangladesh, Uganda, Nauru, Fiji, Korea, Japan and the United States.

Her latest documentary, America’s First Climate Change Refugees is about the way climate change is impacting communities in the US. Her previous documentary, Grassroots America looked at the lead up to the 2016 US Presidential election.

Jan is a regular commentator on The Drum, Paul Murray Live, ABC News Breakfast and Triple J’s Hack. She has also appeared on Q&A and Lateline.

She has lived in Lebanon, France, Bangladesh and Uganda and speaks three languages – most of them terribly. She’s been nominated for a Young Walkley award and three UN Media Peace Prizes but has won none (travesty!).
