Mere hours after I interviewed Veronica Belmont last month, news broke that she was leaving the daily video podcast she helped launch — Mahalo Daily.
Soon enough, Jason Calacanis, founder of Weblogs, Inc. and CEO of the human-powered search engine Mahalo, announced an American Idol-esque contest to find the next host of the Mahalo Daily vlog.
As dozens of potential hosts lined up to audition in side Mahalo HQ in Santa Monica, we grilled Calacanis (and his bulldogs) to find out exactly what kind of host was desired and how she might be found.
I interviewed Veronica Belmont Saturday after Community Next. We discussed her 7-month stint at Mahalo. Yesterday she announced on her blog that she’s moving on after having launched Mahalo Daily. I’ve been a fan since she started speaking up on Buzz Out Loud… what will she get up to next?
