Joanna Gaines Career

Gaines studied communications at Baylor University after graduating from high school. She worked as an intern at the radio station KWBU and the television station KWTX in Waco. Additionally, she interned at the Dan Rather-anchored 48 Hours in New York City for a semester. She stated that her goal as a student was to become a broadcast journalist. In 2001, she received her degree from Baylor. After marrying Chip Gaines Joanna started working for his real estate flipping firm. Moreover, the couple launched Magnolia Market, a home products retail outlet in 2003. An executive from High Noon Entertainment noticed Joanna’s blog about their adventures and recommended that the pair make a quick film known as a “sizzle reel” in hopes of getting a possible show.

HGTV’s Fixer-Upper was eventually based on this idea. Fixer Upper debuted as a pilot in May 2013 and debuted as a full season in April 2014. Seasons two and three started in January, December, and November of 2015, respectively. Season four started in November of the same year. Additionally, on November 21, 2017, the fifth and last season debuted. Fixer Upper quickly gained popularity following its premiere, and the show is mostly responsible for the surge in demand for “Farmhouse-chic” interior design in the latter part of the 2010s. Homes featuring architectural elements discussed on the program, such as shiplap, barn doors, wainscoting, and clawfoot bathtubs, sold for an average of 30% more than their estimated value in 2018, according to Zillow data.

Furthermore, the show led to a rise in tourist and economic growth in Waco, the location of the show’s taping. Magnolia Journal is a quarterly lifestyle magazine that Joanna and Chip Gaines launched in 2016 and Meredith (after Dotdash Meredith) published. Joanna’s “Hearth & Hand with Magnolia” line was first available for purchase at Target Corporation locations on November 1, 2017. 300 pieces, including bedding and lifestyle items, are part of the collection, which is sold both in-person and online. In addition, Gaines designed a line of carpets and pillows that are “globally inspired” exclusively for Anthropologie in February 2019. 2019 April 10: The Gaineses declared their intention to start a “new media company.”

The new joint venture, which is expected to feature a TV network and a streaming app, will be led by them as chief creative officers and presided over by Allison Page, president of HGTV at the moment. Waco, Texas’s Magnolia Press is a coffee business that the Gaineses founded in November 2019. In addition to Magnolia Table and Silos Baking Co., they already owned two other stores. A four-hour presentation titled Magnolia Presents: A Look Back & A Look Ahead on the DIY Network marked the beginning of the soft launch of the cable channel Magnolia Network on April 26, 2020. HGTV revived Fixer Upper, according to Discovery Inc., as a launch show for Magnolia Network, the news channel run by the Gaineses that took the place of HGTV’s sibling station DIY Network.

The date of DIY Network’s rebranding as the Magnolia Network was originally scheduled for October 4, 2020, however, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic caused the date to be rescheduled. On August 4, 2020, HGTV revealed that the network would debut in 2021, with Fixer Upper starting up again before the new network’s January 5, 2022, premiere. As part of the Magnolia Network’s soft launch on Discovery+, the revived series Fixer Upper: Welcome Home made its premiere in January 2021. Fixer Upper: The Hotel will debut in 2023, after Fixer Upper: The Castle in 2022.
