Our Plan Has A Proven Record of Success

Check out this list of some of our notable members and alumni. Here’s another example. After joining STAA, Brett McMillan landed a dream job in his hometown as a multimedia journalist for the St. Louis Cardinals. Watch the video below to hear how an STAA membership helped Brett get the sportscasting job he wanted.

Our Plan Works Because We’ve Been Where You Are

Like you, I will always be a sportscaster. Over 18 years, I sometimes struggled to pay my bills. I fought self-doubt when my career didn’t unfold as fast as I wanted. I persevered, though, and ended-up spending four years at ESPN Radio. You can achieve your goals, too. Looking back, I regret that I didn’t do everything I could to go as far as I could. It wasn’t lack of desire. It was because I didn’t know what I didn’t know. You don’t have to experience those regrets. Helping you avoid them is why I started STAA in 2006. You have ability. To take the next step, you need to know where the jobs are and how to get them. STAA will help you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our members have accepted more than 1110 jobs since 2007. That’s not a percentage, but it’s a pretty awesome rate!

On the radio side, everything from entry level jobs to network PBP, sports talk show hosting, and anchoring. For TV, sports anchor and/or reporter positions in all market sizes across the country. You’ll also receive contact info for employers of TV PBP talent.

Yes, regularly! In fact, many employers have hired multiple STAA members.

Assuming you have the ability and experience for the jobs for which you are applying, your chances are directly proportional to how much effort and strategy you invest into your job search. We can help you put together your best strategy for an aggressive career plan.

Roughly 10% of the openings are exclusively for members, but members receive 100% of our openings before we post them publicly.

When an STAA member has demo samples that fit a job opening within 300 miles of their location, we send a link to their STAA Talent Page or personal website to the employer.

In addition to everything detailed/outlined above, you will have access to the exclusive members-only section of the STAA website. It features a treasure trove of resources to help you get you next job and to help be better in your current job.

Jon hosts a monthly group critique of radio and television demos. (It’s one of our most popular members-only features!) This way, the advice offered to one benefits many. The programs are archived in the STAA Members site.

Absolutely not! Correspondence from STAA members has priority and is answered before all else. Email or text STAA Owner Jon Chelesnik and you’ll usually hear back same-day; never more than one business day. Phone appointments are also available. The number of STAA members actually benefits you – it’s a large network that you get to tap into. “I’m a fellow STAA member!” is an easy, effective door opener. Camaraderie with fellow members is a valuable part of being on the STAA team.
