Genevieve Chappell has a multi-talented personality and a broad resume. She is a professional TV host, columnist and “vlogger.” Most recently, she has been host of ESPN/ESPN2’s “Garage Block” and can be seen on “Mother’s Polish Car Show” and “Russo & Steele Collector Car Auction.” Additionally, she has hosted shows for several networks with diverse subject matter.
Automotive and motocross are particularly close to her heart, and she continually strives to find ways of bringing notoriety to the industry. Her latest venture is the launch of Velocity Magazine online (velocitymag.com). She will do a series of “webisodes” about car events in Orange County throughout the year.
Chappell is the mother of a 10-year-old daughter, Kaleila, and works every day to balance her time with her daughter while giving her best to her very demanding career. “I’m very fortunate in that many of the races, competitions and car shows take place on weekends, although they are spread out all over the country,” says Chappell. “I have a wonderful husband, and, when I have to work weekends, it is his special time with our daughter. I usually leave on Friday night and get back on Sunday evening.”
Chappell is continuing to expand her brand with new media. In addition to hosting, she also produces online programming for various companies, such as Velocity.
