What our Clients Are Saying
Sara Small
Anchor-Reporter, WZTV/Nashville

“One of the best feelings you can have while working in the news business is that you have someone on your side, advocating for you and working to get you in a positive environment. That’s the feeling you have when you work with Mike Bothwell. His positive attitude, go-getter mentality and honesty always makes me feel like someone is in my corner. He has been a mentor to me my whole career and I’m so thankful! My experience with him and Napoli has been nothing but positive!”

Bianca Buono
MMJ-Reporter, KPNX/Phoenix

“I talked with several potential agents and after one phone call with Mike, I knew he was the one! From day one, he listened to my goals, gave valuable feedback, and hit the ground running! Right away, he had interviews at great stations lined up. I’m so happy to say he helped me get a job in my target market and negotiate a great contract! Mike still continues to critique my work on a regular basis in an effort to make me a stronger journalist.”

DeMarco Morgan
Network Correspondent, CBS/New York

“My agent at Napoli Management Group, Sue McInerney, can literally make things happen! When I asked Sue for a job at Network, she responded a few weeks later with, “How would you like to work for CBS?” And the rest is history. I often tell her, “Sue, you’re stuck with me for life!”. I refer to her as my coach. I wouldn’t dare want to go the rest of the way without her in my corner. Sue has protected me throughout my career by teaching me how to maneuver in the work place. Personally, she has become a friend, sister, aunt, mom, life-coach, teacher, counselor and the list goes on and on!”

No one knows and understands the business or the ever-changing landscape of TV News better.”
