Media Personality, Producer, Interviewer, TV Show/Podcast Host and On-Camera Media Trainer, Janette left the studios behind with only 700 Facebook followers to follow her true passion, start Janette Burke Productions and create the 4-time award-winning online lifestyle TV Show, Janette’s TV (currently in Season 12 with over 550 aired episodes) and a world-wide audience of well over 5 million, as well as its sister spin off, Janette’s TV Podcast. A trailblazer who embraced streaming over traditional network television when it wasn’t popular to do so, Janette has always had a knack for asking pertinent questions and taking on controversial topics. She believes everyone has a story that should be told and helps her sponsors and interviewees be SEEN, be HEARD, and be KNOWN while also making an impact on her audience. Janette has interviewed countless A-list celebrities, thought-leaders, game-changers, influencers, and experts in various fields with her unique conversational style. She knows what it takes to assume the spotlight and effectively spread your message. In addition to interviewing, Janette trains CEOs, C-Suite Level executives, entrepreneurs, professionals, coaches, book authors, speakers, and content creators who as the face of their business and brand, want to garner more media attention, how to tell & sell their story in soundbites, improve their presentation, performance & communication skills on-camera (for media, pod & webcast interviews, videos, and LIVES on social media). Prior to living her true passion, Janette spent 17 years behind the camera as the Founding Publicist of Prime Time PR and Editor of PRtalk, Canada’s only online PR Magazine. As a publicist, she taught PR Courses at The Learning Annex and spoke at several events across the Greater Toronto Area. While devising her client’s media strategies, media pitches, press materials, print, radio, TV, Satellite, and Internet media placements, she maintained her own monthly PR column in The York Region Business Times for 4 years in a row and was also featured in several other publications and blogs. In addition, she appeared on local, regional, and national radio & TV Shows, serving as a Media Marketing guest expert. This led to her recurring ‘Magnetic Marketing Moment’ segment, becoming co-host of That Channel’s flagship show, Liquid Lunch and her starting I’m Every Woman! TV on the AllTalk TV and XS Networks. She then developed Janette’s I’m Every Woman! TV for 8 Seasons before rebranding to Janette’s TV & Podcast for Seasons 9, 10, and 11.
"You explain media and being on-camera in a way that makes it seem doable and not intimidating."
