About this agency

Carolyn Kane

Agent Profile
★★★★☆
Early in our careers we all debate if we can do it alone or need some help from an agent. I think people are wise to do their own negotiating and hunting for a first or second job, but after that I do think an agent can be helpful. Carolyn is a hard worker and has a lot of connections. I've never had any trouble reaching her. In fact, she usually responds within minutes of reaching out to her. We honestly don't communicate much when I am not near contract time, but I know she would be there in an instant if I reached out to her. There have been times when I feel like she was juggling too many things at once when I was talking to her, but that is probably just the life of an agent. Overall, I enjoy working with her and it is nice to have somebody looking out for you since we work in such a volatile industry.

Sherrie Brown

Agent Profile
★★★★★
Sherrie is a GEM, not only does she have connections and the experience as a news director, she's a sounding board. Sherrie provides the kick in the butt when needed, the critique that takes your journalism to the next level, and she's the shoulder to cry on for those impossible days on the job. Sherrie was everything I didn't know I needed. She is more than an agent. I can't emphasize enough all that she is, if she is your agent, she is a member of your team and she wants to see you win! I love her.

Sari is more than an agent. She listens. Truly gets to know her clients and understand their needs in and outside of the newsroom. Since I signed, I’ve grown so much as a storyteller under her talent coaching. It’s evident she has your best interest at heart. I love my current newsroom and leadership which she thought would be a good fit. Looking forward to new beginnings soon.

David is not only a great agent but a great person. He will believe in you and push for you. David will get you ready for your next job by providing weekly coaching. That is huge, because he knows what news directors are looking for. He will put you in front of managers in major markets on down. In six months, he took me from a small medium sized market to Washington D.C. David, may also help you find a place to live. Tremendous person!

This dude is the real deal. At first he talked kinda fast and that’s a sign of someone trying to sell me—but that’s just his demeanor. This dude legit cares and fights for the BEST scenario for you. He coaches you weekly. He’ll follow up with how things are—the dude is a true blue professional. Highly recommended

David always has my back. Even after getting the job, he stays in touch to coach, to look at scripts, to give pep talks. He really is the best of the best.

Agent Profile
★★★★☆
I've been with Carolyn since my second job. When I decided to go with her, it was because of her promise to coach. Her thing is we can put a great reel together and get a job, but the coaching would provide the steady improvement to keep me in that next destination and set me apart. Consistent coaching did exactly what she said it would do. All these years later, I can text Carolyn today that I need a coaching session and we're scheduled for the next couple of days. While she hardly ever tells me what I want to hear, she tells me what I NEED to hear and she says it with love. She knows everyone in the business. Her relationships have gotten me looks, interviews, etc. I'm pleased with what she's always been able to negotiate for me. I appreciate that she's always looking for opportunities for me. The only reason this is not five stars is because there have been spurts over the years when I felt like I wasn't getting the attention I really needed, whether because she had too much on her plate or because of a miscommunication/misunderstanding on both our parts. This was especially the case when my contract was coming up this last time around. However, overall I am happy with Carolyn and pleased that I connected with her to manage my career. She took a chance on me, even after I left the business and decided to come back, and I'm in a good position thanks in LARGE part to her.

Carolyn is an excellent person to have in your corner. She takes the time to check-in and go through your stories/shows and I’ve never had an issue getting in touch with her. She is not the type of agent who is only around during contract time and job hunting. Carolyn is a great negotiator, fights for her clients and is well-connected in the industry.
