OTA Talent Expands National Presence and Hires Erika Lopez as a Broadcast Talent Agent
OTA Talent maintains the prestigious designation as the largest pure play TV News Agency in America. This metric is measured by agent count.
OTA Vice President Kimberly Price explains why Lopez is the perfect fit for Team OTA. “Erika is a true professional with the industry knowledge to guide her clients to success. She is also a ‘people person’ who genuinely connects with anyone who has the pleasure of working with her,” Price said.
Lopez personally knows what it takes to jump from market 205 to network. She started her broadcasting career as a Weekend Meteorologist/Reporter in Victoria, Texas, then quickly made her way to a national platform forecasting for the 24/7 weather network, WeatherNation. From there she continued to rise in the industry as a well-connected and respected meteorologist.
Lopez looks forward to leveraging her industry expertise to advise and guide OTA clients. “I am honored to join OTA Talent as a bilingual agent. Utilizing my broadcasting career, skills, and experiences, along with being a part of one of the top TV News Talent Agencies in the country, my clients and I will be unstoppable at achieving their career goals,” Lopez explained.
Lopez advanced from the Morning Meteorologist at KVUE in Austin, TX to the 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. newscasts at KHOU, in Houston, Texas. After experiencing what it takes to forecast and cover one of the most intense weather markets in the country, Lopez was asked to return to KVUE as the station’s first female Chief Meteorologist and one of the youngest Chief Meteorologists in the market.
OTA Talent CEO Jeff Marcu said, “Erika is a first-class agent and person. She brings the expertise, industry knowledge and attention to detail that our clients expect from OTA. She also gives OTA a representation advantage as a bilingual agent.”
