Welcome! After 13 Emmys and 20 years on the air for shows like Good Morning America and Dr. Oz, I’m a familiar face and trusted source for your customers.

I love collaborating with clients to help them meet their goals. My role as your brand ambassador could include the following formats and more:
When we work together, I go above and beyond simply serving as “talent” or a subject matter expert and offer my insights as a media relations insider. After all, unlike many people doing this work, I am still a working TV broadcaster. Since I also work as a media relations coach and help companies craft their PR strategy, you get this knowledge-set at no extra charge.
I can tell you which sorts of reporters to pitch, how to approach them, what to say and which formats to suggest. My insights improve your chances of getting the free publicity you are after. After 20 years as a journalist, I also have hundreds of media contacts of my own, who I can tap, when appropriate.
For more information on my separate consulting services as a media relations expert, please visit the Elisabeth Leamy Consulting Page.
My fees vary widely, depending on what services you need. Clients often expand or contract their list of projects to find the right fit for their budget. To get detailed fee information, please contact: agent Adam Kirschner at Adam@ALKTalent.com
I’m choosy about what companies and causes I will work with, but from time to time, I partner with worthy companies and organizations that are doing good things for consumers. If I am genuinely enthusiastic about your products or services, I will help you get the word out. How do I choose? Some companies have made an admirable commitment to consumer education. Some have developed products that help consumers solve tricky problems. Others have opened up a dialogue about thorny issues consumers care about.
I’m picky. Before I work with a company as its corporate spokesperson, I check it out to make sure it’s truly consumer-friendly. I’m transparent. While I’m working with a company, I clearly disclose my ties. And I’m ethical. After working with a company, I recuse myself from doing stories about that company if I could be perceived to have a bias.
If a company passes all of my tests, I have served as both a video spokesperson and corporate host. I’ve engaged in satellite media tours, webinars and town hall meetings.
As a finance expert, I have developed programs for companies that want to teach their customers how to manage their money better. As a media relations expert, I have helped corporations understand how newsrooms work and plan big announcements accordingly. And as a consumer advocate, I have helped spread the word about product innovations we can all benefit from.
When I work as your spokesperson, I lend you my own impeccable reputation —and I take good care of yours as well. We will work together to make sure our relationship is appropriately disclosed, to meet FTC guidelines, and our own standards.
Here are my very latest television appearances.
And here are my latest print and online appearances.
