Travel Channel host Samantha Brown

Samantha Brown, the inspiring and popular host of several programs on the Travel Channel, spends over 200 days traveling each year. Currently shooting the third season of her widely popular series, Samantha Brown’s Great Weekends, new episodes will begin airing in Spring 2010. Sam’s childhood in New Hampshire was far from a jet set experience. Her forays out of state led her to nearby Canada or Cape Cod, Massachusetts. “I never dreamed I’d travel to so many exotic locations!”  After studying musical theater and receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at Syracuse University, Sam spent eight years in New York City pursing an acting career. Sam’s path took a dramatic turn when a production company saw her in a commercial and referred her to the Travel Channel “because she looked like the girl next door.”
