Possibilities for Rocketboom's Amanda

So the big news is that Amanda from Rocketboom was fired, and she's moving to LA. She seems worried, because how do you move to a new town, alone, with no job?

Here at LAist we have some good places that Ms. Congdon should toss her reel:

+ E! - (Miracle Mile) - they unloaded $10 mil on Ryan Seacrest and also paid for a new season of the Simple Life. Clearly they're desperate, and willing to get in a bidding war over new talent. Amanda could get rich quick as the new Wild On babe.

+ G4TV (Santa Monica) - You laugh, but Morgan Webb has quietly become a cult-level sex symbol. Owned by the same parent company as E! (Comcast), this is actually a better fit, as many of those in Amanda's current audience are probably not strangers to G4TV's high-tech and gaming content.

+ MySpace (Santa Monica) - Tom is great, but there still isn't really a voice of the site. With tens of millions of young people on the page every day, don't you think it would be a good idea to use some of that video technology to say hi to the kids? Fox has their finger on the pulse and the ear of the most important demo, and MySpace could suffer if they continue to give the silent treatment to their audience. Amanda could be that voice, and years from now people will be asking "Tom who?"

+ MTV (Santa Monica) - What ever happened to Tabitha Soren? Wasn't ABC supposed to groom her into Gen X's Walter Cronkite? Instead she just seemed to have faded off into the sunset. Here's your chance, MTV, to make up for that huge mistake.
