You’ve seen her on the Travel Channel for 15 years now, but you’ve never known travel host Samantha Brown like you will on this week’s Glambition Radio.
We go “behind the scenes” into her story, her incredible career, what travel REALLY means to her, and how her new twins (boy-girl and same age as mine!) have changed her life.
Samantha’s big break as a TV host happened while she pursued an acting career. A producer spotted her work in a commercial and recommended her to the Travel Channel in 1999 to audition for a new show being developed called Great Vacation Homes.
She got the gig. And a slew more shows over the next decade, including Great Hotels, Girl Meets Hawaii, Passport to Europe, Passport to Latin America, Green Getaways, Passport to China, Great Weekends, and Samantha Brown’s Asia.
Samantha’s fun “girlfriend” style made her a new type of television personality in the travel space – one whose approach was less expert and more a person you would want to travel with. (And who wouldn’t want to follow her to all 220 cities and 49 countries she’s been to so far?)
Her personal brand has also expanded into a luggage line, travel wear, and practical accessories for taking life on the road. I ask her how these business deals came about, and how she manages it all.
By clicking the button below you can hear how Samantha took control of her destiny (and her career) in her Glambition Radio interview.
Samantha’s new show “50/50” is an action-packed, 50-hour getaway worth $50,000 that starts when two Travel Channel hosts find unsuspecting people on the street and ask a simple question — can you leave right now?
In this new Travel Channel original series, premiering on Sunday, October 4 at 7pm ET/PT, Samantha and her cohost Chris Grundy are doing the asking and whisking an impulsive couple on an unforgettable two-day getaway where they are presented with extravagant and excruciatingly amazing choices every step of the way: where to go, what to do, when to eat… and should they take time out to sleep. But, the intrepid travelers must drop everything and leave right now! (Could you do it? If I had childcare I would!)

Samantha and I also share a bit about our twins, and how we will never view travel the same way again. (It’s messy, but it’s worth it!)
