Grand Rising Talent
Grand Rising Talent is a Los Angeles-based licensed talent agency & media strategy firm connecting diverse television talents and on-camera experts to impactful opportunities. Grand Rising Talent specializes in advocating for talent from diverse, intersectional backgrounds, including communities of color and LGBTQ+ identities. Grand Rising Talent currently represents a growing roster of talent including national talk show hosts, news anchors, cable news contributors, on-camera food experts, health & wellness experts, business experts, and more. Grand Rising Talent was created as an extension of GJP Media Services, LLC founded in 2012. GJP Media Services has served clients across the U.S., Canada, and Europe with brand-building publicity services rooted in top-tier television news expertise.
Grand Rising Talent’s story is centered in service and storytelling. As a TV reporter in a top 5 media market, our founder developed a passion for telling stories that gave underserved populations, women, and millennials a voice. Her original reporting on cultural topics was frequently picked up by national media outlets. After starting GJP Media Services, friends across the television industry frequently inquired for strategy, referrals, guidance, connections, and support in their career journeys. It became clear there was power in talents being served by an executive who understands first-hand what it means to be a talent and empathizes with the challenges talents face navigating an ever-changing media landscape. Grand Rising Talent was born out of this need to provide talents with strong advocacy, to tell their unique personal and professional stories, and to help them create powerful content that is culturally revenant to today’s audiences.
