Penn Holderness Talks About Being A Dad

While at Dad2Summit in Washington, DC, Mike from TopDaddies interviews Penn Holderness about being a dad! You know, the guy from the famous “Xmas Jammies“, “Baby Got Class” and “All About That Baste” videos? Penn talks about how they got started making videos and what’s important to him as a father.


Penn Holderness is an 18 year veteran of the TV business. Since college (UVA) he’s been a sports director in Colorado and Orlando, a TV host for Designer Finals, an ESPN Reporter, and most recently a news anchor in Raleigh.

And after those 18 years, he’s decided that he isn’t really interested in about half of the things he talked about on the news. So he quit! He now runs a video production/digital marketing company (, and is using his blog to showcase the 100% of things he actually cares about.

Penn is married to Kim Dean Holderness (who is also his business partner) and have two kids, Lola and Penn Charles.
