August has put together her fair share of all-star rosters, making her Turner’s very own MVP. She oversees all talent department aspects across the company’s TV and digital platforms. Also, she helps facilitate on-air productions, sales, marketing and promotional activities, with an emphasis on liaising with sport teams, leagues, agents and celebrities to facilitate contract negotiations and special guest bookings.

My personal election campaign slogan would be…
Ice cream for everyone!
