Hello new friends and fans of The Minnesota Traveler!!

I am so very excited and proud with the success and praise we are receiving regarding our new television series The Minnesota Traveler.  Like your wonderful host Jennifer Mergen, I too have had dreams that have finally happened. This TV show concept has been an idea of mine for five years or so.  But I have been thinking of creating and producing my own television show for twenty years plus.

While the idea for The Minnesota Traveler was mine, there is no way this show would have ever been produced without the amazing assistance of my business partner Randy Lee.  Randy and I formed our company McCally-Lee Entertainment (MLE) almost exactly two years ago.  What a learning experience and thrill ride it has been.  And now we have a TV show on the air, on two different regional television networks!!  Plus we have worked hard to communicate via the digital world too.  (Check out our social media platforms, please.)  Thank you, Randy, so very much for believing in me and my dreams!!

And I want to thank my Mom Marcia and Step-dad Burke for all their wonderful help, plus my Dad John and Step-mom Elaine too.  I have had outstanding family support as well as great friends who have cheered me on along the way.  I also had others that scoffed that I could take an idea and actually get it on television.  Non-believers.  I not only had a dream, but I had the inner-strength and belief that I could do it.  And I was able to do it, with incredible help from Randy, our production crew (thanks Forrest!!) and many of you reading this blog.  Simply put, I thank you very, very much.

Here is to exploring...and dreaming....beyond expectations!!  Tune in soon to watch the next fantastic episode of The Minnesota Traveler, starring your host Jennifer Mergen.
