Joanie Dodds in Beaver County Times Regarding TV Hosting Gig (Nov 09)

July 18, 2010

In November of 2009, Beaver County Times posted an article regarding Cycle 6’s runner up, Joanie Dodds, regarding her new gig as TV Host for “Run My Renovation” on DIY Network. Here is the text from the article/interview. (Written and Posted by Scott Tady):

From modeling to remodeling

Beaver County’s reality-television sweetheart has found a new TV gig.

Joanie Dodds — who’d you think I meant? — will co-host “Run My Renovation,” a home-improvement show on the DIY network.

“We just started filming, so it won’t be on TV until like January or so,” Dodds, formerly of Patterson Township, said. “It films in Knoxville, Tennessee, about every other week, so I’m on the road a lot but it’s a super fun experience and I’m learning so much. I even get to drive a big red pickup truck.”

Doesn’t take much to please the former “America’s Next Top Model” runner-up, eh?

Since her appearance on that CW program, Dodds, 28, has become a pro model, spending a few months this year in Italy’s fashion mecca, Milan.

But a steady job as a TV show hostess is a bigger deal, even if on a network like DIY, which people with basic cable or standard satellite service can’t get without an upgrade.

“I just hope that this is the beginning of an empire for me and I am the next Pam Anderson-Martha Stewart hybrid,” Dodds said with a laugh. “I’m going for sexy mogul.”
