Be Team Carry-On & Houston, Charlotte, Vegas with Jonathan McCall

Houston Charlotte Vegas Jonathan Mccall

Episode 1

If you are someone who is always checking a bag, then this episode is definitely for you! Hello, my name is Holly and I am an over packer who is Team Carry-On. In this episode I talk about 5 reasons why you should be Team Carry-On too. I get that it can be hard. Hopefully this will steer you in the direction of no longer checking it unless you have to!


My guest is Emmy Award winning News Anchor and Houston native Jonathan McCall. In 2013, Jonathan was named best News Anchor, and Breaking News reporter, by the Lone Star Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. He has lived in Texas, Louisiana, Virginia, Nevada, California, Oklahoma, Maryland, and currently North Carolina reporting the news.

Jonathan has had the opportunity to be on the scene of some of the country’s biggest stories including the copyright infringement trial of actor Tyler Perry, and was first on the scene as federal investigators raided the Las Vegas home of Dr. Conrad Murray as part of the Michael Jackson trial.

Jonathan gives a lot of insight into great places to eat, things to do, and how to get around in the many cities that he has lived in. With mention to many of the cities listed above, the prime focus falls on his hometown of Houston, his current city Charlotte, and one of his favorite and mine, Las Vegas!

We also talk a lot about food. Hear how we like our grits in the age old debate. Also find out who accidentally walked out the airport with the wrong bag, and if Jonathan checks his bag or is apart of Team Carry-On.
