As co-president of UTA (a title shared with David Kramer), Sures is in charge of all of the agency’s TV divisions, as well as its news, broadcast and speakers business. In recent months, he oversaw negotiations for Kaitlan Collins to become CNN’s youngest-­ever chief White House correspondent and secured a straight-to-series order for Elizabeth Vargas’ reboot of “America’s Most Wanted.” He also signed former South Carolina Democratic Party chair Jaime Harrison, adding to a speakers roster that includes prominent politicos such as John Kasich and Chris Krebs. His personal client list includes such high-profile television journalists as David Muir, Chuck Todd, Norah O’Donnell, Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin, making him the natural choice to host UTA’s annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner party.
