Jesse Janson, VP of Acquisitions & Development for Janson Media, is primarily responsible for the emergence of Bob Ross as a modern-day cultural icon. In 2013, Janson negotiated the acquisition of digital rights to the classic television series The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross, an American public television program that became the most watched painting program in the world. Working with Bob Ross, Inc., the owners of the IP, Janson proceeded to develop a branding campaign that re-introduced Bob Ross to the world, placing the content on virtually every major digital video platform.
Central to this branding campaign is the The Bob Ross Youtube Channel, designed and managed by Janson Media, with 4.8 million subscribers and over 488 million views as of May 2021. Recently Janson Media produced and premiered on the Youtube channel a one-hour special, Keeping the Bob Ross Dream Alive, featuring Bob Ross-certified painter and instructor Nic Hankins.
Janson also brought on Twitch.TV as an early partner in the campaign, launching a linear OTT Channel, which today has over 1.9 million loyal followers. The Bob Ross channel on Twitch celebrates Bob's birthday every October with a 10-day marathon.
Twenty-one seasons of The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross are also available on Amazon Prime Video, where they form a central hub for a wide range of officially licensed Bob Ross merchandise, much of it available for sale on Amazon.
