Jean Sage has been representing on-air talent for more than thirty years. Since 1996, Jean has been representing on-air talent at Napoli Management Group.
If you ask her how she got started as an agent she is happy to tell you. It was soap operas that started the journey. As a frustrated “extra” actress on the soaps and tired of the commercial cattle calls, her NY agent asked if she had any interest in becoming an agent. After a few years casting TV commercials and soap operas, she moved to International Management Group in New York. Their broadcast division was looking to expand its commercial endorsement reach for its sports stars.
During her seven years with IMG, Jean worked extensively with John Madden, Bob Costas, Billie Jean King, among many others, and had the great pleasure of working with the legendary Muhammad Ali. In 1984, she became one of the first female vice presidents of IMG.
Her love of the news business never waned over the years. Through the years at NMG, she represented news anchors, reporters and weather talent. She has negotiated hundreds of contracts from the smaller market stations to network, syndication and cable operations.
Today Jean has narrowed her practice and spends her time representing two of the biggest names in cable news. Fitting for someone who has dedicated so much of her life to helping on air talent reach the pinnacle of their careers.
