GlobeTrotter Jon Haggins TV is a fun, informative and entertaining program that features destinations, foodies and guests from around the world. The main goal is to expand our audience horizon beyond their couch and allow them to discover many dreamy far away places where they can reach for the stars. I have also contributed travel segments to NPR Radio. NPR has a listening audience of 25 million.
Jon wrote The African American Travel Guide, which is an informative book, that offers advise on where to get a passport, where to exchange money, security precautions, bartering in the markets and what to pack etc. I also share narratives of my travel experiences. In addition to my book, I have contributed short stories to Eric Copage’s -Soul Food Book. And have been featured in and have written for numerous publications.
Jon has also been a spokesperson for Procter and Gamble’s Ultra Detergents. The Museum of the City of New York is presently exhibiting a retrospective of my fashion designs. And the Schomburg Library has acquired my fashion archive of photographs, video, films and editorials.

And let me not forget that I was a voice for FOX-TV’s public service announcement, “It’s Ten PM. Do you know where your children are?”
