Third Acquisition by Glass City Talent, LLC in the Broadcast Media Space

Phoenix, AZ April 11, 2024. Glass City Talent, LLC, the holding company for Talent Dynamics, has recently
acquired the assets of News Blues, a broadcast news website from Reel Media Group. This marks the third
acquisition for the veteran broadcast executives in less than two years. Glass City Talent, LLC previously
acquired Talent Dynamics, the industry’s leading placement and coaching company in June 2022, followed by
a competing broadcast industry placement database in the summer of 2023. However, this acquisition is
subject to a non-disclosure agreement.
“At a time when there is much talk about the decline of broadcast television, Glass City Talent believes that the
core of the industry still holds value and is evolving,” said Gary Brown, CEO and Owner of Glass City Talent,
LLC. “Given the recent turbulence in the digital news space, we believe a valuable voice of news for those in
the broadcast industry is essential. News Blues will provide news, insights, and answers for journalists, rather
than criticize them,” said Patrick McCreery, Co-Owner and Advisor for Glass City Talent, LLC.

“Having owned and operated News Blues since 2021, I am happy to transfer the site to Gary and Patrick,
industry innovators with whom I share a long-standing relationship. We have grown Newsblues over the past
three years by bolstering content and adding a popular digital newsletter.. Local news needs Newsblues more
than ever,” said Stephanie Tsoflias-Siegel, Owner of Reel Media Group.
The company plans to relaunch News Blues’ sourcebook as a digital version of the Black Book, which Talent
Dynamics published for many years. This move will bring value to website subscribers by offering unique
content produced by the Talent Dynamics team for the website and social channels. The acquisition will also
give Glass City Talent a larger footprint to share its expertise in the performance training space.
Glass City Talent has been very focused on deals that would complement their current services and extend
Talent Dynamics’ brand. They plan to make additional and accretive investments in the broadcast media
