News and Entertainment
IF represents some of the most respected U.S. broadcasters and international journalists on television.
IF’s news clients span the industry, from the network/national cable level to syndication to the top local markets. This includes anchors, reporters, correspondents, business analysts, weathercasters, hosts and experts in various niches. IF also works with production companies and programming divisions at cable networks to provide an expansive range of opportunities for its clients.
With the news cycle now measured in seconds and minutes, it’s imperative for broadcasters to be well-rounded. IF works with its clients to refine their skill sets and help them become as versatile as possible. The goal is for them to be prepared for any situation that arises: a strong on-air delivery, writing a piece on deadline, editing a video with hardly any lead time, or even shooting a breaking news story.
IF Client Since 2001
“Steve Herz took a chance on me when I was a nobody, because he trusted his instincts and liked my tape. Within six months he had four job offers for me. He got me the exact job I wanted, covering hotspots for a great network. I’ve sent friends to IF Management for a bunch of reasons: they are honest, they are aggressive, and they are street smart. Besides that, they think ahead. Even after they’ve gotten you something, they are thinking of the next step.”
IF Client Since 1999
“I was a bit apprehensive about hiring an agent. I made dozens of calls and talked with many people but I never felt comfortable, except in my conversations with Steve Herz and everyone at IF. They knew me as a professional and treated me as a friend. That’s what sold me. The group at IF is good—there is just no other way to put it. In less than three months from signing with IF, I moved from the CBS affiliate in South Texas to New York, becoming a reporter for Court TV. Everyone made sure that the decision was mine and I felt secure about it. But most important, they are always around when I need them. They are willing to talk about work or just hang out. It’s gratifying to find people you can trust.”
IF Client Since 1999
“When I first began searching for representation, I was looking for several key attributes. I wanted a company that honestly cared about their clients’ success and well being. I wanted a company that could think “out of the box” to help place me in a job that best matched my career goals. I wanted a company that would be with me every step of the way in my career, as my business partner, guiding me to make the best decisions for “our” future. And most importantly, I wanted a company that I could trust enough to manage my career, which I have worked so hard to build. When I discovered IF Management, I knew I had found what I was looking for. To this day they have lived up to all my expectations. I am proud to recommend them to anyone who’s looking for a representative that’s not afraid to go the extra mile!”
