About this agency

Agent Profile

I’ve had contracts not renewed twice and both times Dana helped land me a MUCH better job while never missing a paycheck! Sometimes things happen for a reason and I’m thankful to have had her on my side! Dana came highly recommended by my friend after being highly recommended by her friend, so I will definitely recommend to you!

Five years ago, I was burnt out at my station. 60+ hour weeks, no raises, a ton of exhaustion and feeling trapped. After applying to stations on my own with no luck, I was ready to toss in the towel. Then, I connected with Dana. Not only did her therapeutic nature pull me from the doldrums, she found me an oasis. A legacy station that rejuvenated my career. As if you couldn't tell, I highly recommend Dana.

Dana has been my agent for nearly 20 years. There’s no one better. She knows just about every ND and GM in the business. Her professionalism and expert negotiating skills have always guaranteed me better and better contracts over the years — and that’s really what you want in an agent. But, beyond that, she’s also a great person and a friend. She’s always been there for me when I needed advice. You can’t ask for better. Dana is the best, period!

Dana is amazing and fights incredibly hard for her clients. I signed with Dana just a few years into my career. She helped me grow from a reporter and fill-in anchor at that time, into a polished, full-time/weekday anchor. I actually left Dana for a year and signed with a larger agency. I quickly realized that was a mistake and went back to Dana and Mark. I went a year without any interviews with a new agency, and Dana got me two interviews within the first day of looking for me when I re-signed with her. Dana and Mark give clients a personalized service and relationship. They are both incredibly experienced in the industry and beyond helpful, not just with securing and maintaining client positions, but also from the talent and coaching perspective. After working together for many years, Dana knows me incredibly well without me having to explain or remind her of what I want in my life and career. It truly feels like working with a mentor and friend, and I absolutely trust her with my career. Unlike some larger agencies, I know Dana has my best interest at heart and will fight for what’s right for her clients. From a client perspective, it seems like her number one goal is to make sure her clients are happy and successful. Thank you, Dana and Mark!

Dana’s experience, compassion and honesty have made the experience of finding a perfect job and growing as a journalist an empowering one. I interviewed a lot of agents before finally signing with Dana and I chose her because she is a true ally and advocate for her clients. She is quick to send feedback on any clips you send her. Dana negotiated an amazing contract for me recently with a pay raise much more than I expected. I’ve grown because of her and I am more confident in my skills and my ability to land another dream job soon. Dana is great!

I spoke to many agents before I decided to go with Dana, and I don't regret it one bit. I really wanted to move home to San Francisco, but couldn't get a response from news directors there on my own. Within weeks, Dana landed me 2 interviews, and I received offers from both of those hometown stations. For 1 of those stations, Dana got them to fly me out last minute because I unexpectedly got an offer from a station in Dallas and they wanted an answer ASAP. She got the Dallas station to wait until Monday, got the Bay Area station to fly me out Sunday, interview Monday prepared to make an offer by the end of the interview – this way I could decide by end of day Monday. I ended up picking the Dallas station, but Dana was the one who helped give me the option of actually going home. I was talking to other top 10 markets at the same time too. She's been great for me. Five stars!

I wanted an agent that gave feedback, and understood the direction I was headed. I am SO glad I found, Dana. She sent me email updates everyday, and was honest and real with me from the beginning. You won't be disappointed.

I cannot say enough good things about Dana Adams. She's been with me through the great, the good, the tough and the downright horrible (which is typical of news). She's coached me to success, helped my on-air performance and even had great hair/makeup/clothing tips. Beyond that, she's honest. She's real. She listens and pitches me for the right job and not in a bulk email of clients like I have seen/heard other agents do. She's negotiated some really great opportunities for me with excellent pay and I have heard timetime again from several of my previous News Directors how much they like her and like working with her (something they usually make mention of being "unusual.") Dana is top notch.

Dana has been by my side for more than a decade. She was working with me for years before I started paying her a commission. Dana truly listens to her clients and helps them get to where they want to go. I love that Dana has been in our shoes as a former TV reporter/correspondent. She is also a mother and wife and understands how important work life balance is. You won't regret signing with Dana. She is the BEST!

I’ve been in the business for about 7 years, and I have yet to hear of an agent who fights for their clients like Dana Adams. She has been one of the greatest blessings in my life both professionally and personally. Anytime you need to get ahold of her she answers. And if she doesn’t, you’ll get a text, call or email back within minutes. It’s good to have someone who has knowledge about the business and experience to help groom and make you better. She also has contacts in markets all over, including network. Couldn’t imagine navigating this course without Dana. She is truly the best. I’d walk through fire for her any day. And she would do the same for you.

When I first reached out to Dana in 2018, she basically told me I was horrible and would not take me on as a client (in the nicest, constructive way of course). I told her I'd be back a few months later, and I was with a new reel. I signed with her in May of 2019. While I was focused on 100 markets, as any station would be my first actual job in news, other than a contributor, Dana was able to land me a weekend anchor/ reporter role in Tulsa, which is a 59 market. She's always responsive and always willing to take my calls. And whatever I ask of her, she does. I'm sure even when I am asking for the impossible. She constantly provides feedback and suggestions. Never disrespectful in her feedback, just honest and up front.

I've been working with Dana and Mark for a little over a year now, and talk about having someone in your corner! They have been an integral part of my development and growth as an anchor. I've seen how much I've improved over the last year or so with my inflection, my reads, my packages… they even hammered down "my look" (the best combo of hair/makeup/clothing on air for me). When they thought I could do better with my tracking/anchor reads, they'd always schedule a call to go over scripts with me. They're honest, but it comes from a good place. If they represent you, it's because they see something in you. So if they're telling you to do something different, it's truly because you're capable. They have incredible connections, and they make sure to place you where you will thrive. They truly make an incredible team – they don't see you as a client, they see you as a fellow teammate. If you're in the market for an agent who will not only help you find a job, but will help you improve daily and help you build the confidence you need to survive in such a competitive industry, I would highly recommend Adams Broadcast Consulting!

Dana is a fantastic agent! I’ve been with her for several years now. Not only is she a great talent coach (having worked on air), she is very selective when sending you out for job searches. She won’t lump you in with other anchors on her roster looking for a job. That’s the benefit of a boutique agency. She knows each client very well. Dana also puts together each client reel which saves you an incredible amount of time when job hunting! She negotiated contracts well and fights for her clients. She keeps up with me and is always checking in and following up – incredibly fast at responding to emails, texts and calls as well. 10/10 recommend her!

I’ve been signed with Dana for a year now. She’s very positive but honest. I don’t have any serious complaints. I’ve enjoyed our relationship overall. She offers really good feedback on ways to improve my writing and voice. She’s been in the business for a while so I feel like she knows what areas to target when attracting clients to news directors. My only real complaint would be the pay, 8%. That’s not terrible but it works better the more money you make. We were able to negotiate a higher salary for my most recent job – less than what I wanted but more than what was originally offered.
