Jan Fran is a journalist and TV presenter. She hosts The Feed on SBS VICELAND where she makes the news funny. Jan writes, directs and produces everything from long form documentaries to sketch comedy segments for the show.
Jan Fran began her career as an SBS cadet and has shot and produced stories from all over the world for SBS World News and Dateline, often travelling solo. She was nominated for a Young Walkley award for a three-part series she shot on women in Uganda. She is one of a handful of Australian journalists who was allowed into Nauru to cover the re-opening of Australia’s off-shore detention centre.
Jan has lived in Lebanon, France, Bangladesh and Uganda and speaks three languages – most of them terribly. She’s been nominated for many awards but in what she describes as an “utter travesty” has won none.
