JO WHEELER - Brand Manager/Production

With a legacy of storytelling and knack for getting into uncanny situations, Jo Wheeler has always been able to captivate an audience. A Chicago native, Jo began her infamous tales of travel and adventure when she headed south to attend college in Atlanta, GA. During her time there, she came to lead two lives; one as a seasoned IT professional, and the other as a managing director of live music venues.

Although IT proved to be a very lucrative field, Jo tended to find more joy running some of the more popular night spots such as “Atlanta Nights,” “Dominique’s,” and “Dion’s (Sanders) Club 21,” as well as REHAB (formerly MIDWAY) in New York City’s lower east side. There, she was able to combine two of her favorite things – sports and music.

With a solid background in Broadcast Journalism, co-hosting and producing both sports and musical programs for radio stations nationally, Jo has established her ability to take charge of any given situation. Responsibilities that included maintaining a music database have also assisted with gaining a strong base knowledge that complements her career. Her professional but friendly disposition, natural leadership skills, and willingness to travel, has resulted in production opportunities in Chicago, Atlanta, New Orleans, New York, Paris, and Amsterdam.

Sabrina Coleman grew up watching Channel 9 News in her hometown of Denver, CO. She dreamt that one day she would be watching herself on that same newscast. Sabrina always excelled in writing and creativity based classes, which lead her to the School of Communications at Howard University.

Sabrina began to use her talents daily when she moved to Los Angeles, CA, and dove head first into the entertainment industry. As a celebrity assistant, Sabrina was introduced first hand to a world which few enter. She did everything from picking up laundry for celebrities, to walking those same celebrities down the red carpet. She paid close attention to the language, and never took her position for granted.

Years later she went back to Denver to take a production position at the national television corporation, Starz Entertainment. Sabrina was an innovator right from the start. She scheduled and conducted celebrity interviews, wrote all her own scripts for her segments, and created programming the channels never imagined.

Now Sabrina wants to help others grow their businesses, their brands and their passions, while utilizing her talents and experience in the entertainment industry.

Her passion is creating “outside the box.”
