Jay
Sures

Co-President

Sures led United Talent Agency’s negotiations with the Writers Guild of America to resolve its role in the year-long industry-wide dispute over packaging fees that prevented the agency from repping writers. Consequently, UTA became the first major agency to reach an agreement with the guild in July 2020. As co-president of UTA, his day-to-day responsibilities include overseeing all of the agency’s television divisions, including scripted and non-scripted, as well as its news, broadcast and speakers business. He has a personal client list rich with top TV newspeople (Chuck Todd, Norah O’Donnell, Don Lemon, Brooke Baldwin), along with leading TV series creator Chuck Lorre and former Ohio governor John Kasich. With the agency since its 1991 launch, he’s also cofounder of its philanthropic arm, the UTA Foundation.
