UTA said Monday that former ABC News and Mic executive Marc Paskin has joined as an agent in its News and Broadcast division. He will be tasked with building opportunities for clients straddling digital and traditional media and work in the agency’s New York office.
The news comes as the division earlier today said it had signed former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who joins a client roster that already includes the likes of Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Norah O’Donnell, David Muir, Dana Bash, Glenn Beck, Chuck Todd, Margaret Brennan and Brian Kilmeade.
“As is all of media, the news business is evolving rapidly and being disrupted by new platforms and services,” said Peter Goldberg, a UTA partner and head of News and Broadcast. “We are thrilled to add Marc and his entrepreneurial skill set and spirit, as we continue to create opportunities for the most innovative and groundbreaking professionals in the news business.”
Previously a talent exec at ABC News, Paskin moved to Mic where oversaw talent development and business affairs while leading its media business development and video production efforts. The latter included producing interviews with Hillary Clinton, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Beto O’Rourke among others.
He started his career at Innovative Artists.
