“I met Marc when he visited my high school to speak about his job as a reporter, and I remember his passion was so apparent, it reinvigorated my own. Since then, not much has changed; he continues to motivate me through honest critique and encouragement.  In such a competitive field, it is so helpful to have someone on your side, and for me, that person is Marc.”

Parents of Clients

Marc,

I would like to thank you for the time and effort you have put forth in relation to my son’s video and audio demo. I am convinced this will put Adam in a position for an opportunity that is related to his future career. Its real simple for me. I size up people in 5 minutes, you say what you do and do what you say. .As a matter of fact Marc, you go beyond your contract. While a demo reel is an important aspect in this process, what I appreciate is the fact that you provide timely consulting, coaching and mentoring along the way to an individual seeking a potential position in the broadcast industry. I know you don’t have to provide this service for a living. It clearly shows in your attitude, that you truly enjoy working to support commited students in their quest to break into broadcasting industry.

Sincerely,

(Michael Bagni has graciously agreed to provide contact information upon request.)

Good Morning, Marc:

Many thanks for meeting with Eva last week and for continuing to keep her on the right track as far as what she is currently doing and what she needs to concentrate on for future success. She always phones me right after meeting with you to say how motivating and supportive you are and I am most grateful for that.

Putting Eva in touch with Pat Ciarrocchi has been invaluable, as Eva is now refining her “look” thanks to Pat’s sage advice. Pat really took the time to help Eva and I am both impressed and awed by her kindness, as I continue to be with yours.

Hooking Eva up with Meredith Marakovits to spend an evening at a 76ers game was also a huge plus. Eva saw first hand exactly what an NBA sideline reporter does and, since that is Eva’s ultimate goal, it was quite inspiring.

Simple words like “thank you” are never really enough, Marc, when there is a person out there looking out for your child and so today I will simply say that my wish is to do something wonderful for you. Please continue to provide my name as a reference. I will speak and/or meet with anyone for you. I won’t merely sing your praises — I’ll bring an orchestra!

Have a wonderful day,

Julia ZaccariaPhiladelphia
Hello Marc,
 
I would like to thank you for the ongoing guidance and insight you have provided for our son Jordan Kuhns.  When he first started working with you several years ago, he knew what his goals were, but was encountering issues with “communicating his story” out to prospective sports broadcast venue’s to meet them.  You immediately started working with Jordan to formulate a plan based on his strength’s.  From your initial meetings with Jordan as well as my wife Sandy and I, we were very impressed in how you outlined growth plans and the best way for Jordan to execute them.  You were honest and frank about the challenges that Jordan would encounter (and those we (his parents) potentially would need to support) in working his way up through the industry.   On more than one occasion, your suggestion for him to reach out to a specific resource has helped him add another contact to his network as well as some additional helpful insights about his product.
 
The ongoing reviews and suggestions you have made to him as he worked through his career, has been invaluable in making him not only a better broadcaster, but in providing him with an increased confidence in his product.  Whenever Jordan reached out to you, your responses were timely, detailed and honest.   
 
As Jordan’s continues his climb up the long ladder to his ultimate broadcast goals, we look forward to your continued guidance and insight that will improve Jordan’s broadcast message and further his career.
 
Thank you,
 

Jim and Sandy Kuhns

I just wanted to say a word of thanks for the help you are giving to Joe.  I appreciate your forwarding me these emails.  There’s nothing in the world I’d like to see more than my son pursue and achieve his dreams, and I can see he is well on his way!  You have my everlasting thanks and gratitude!
