Swoon Talent LLC is a hybrid between a manager and a publicist with a focus on broadcast placements. We are NOT agents operating on straight commission only….. however, we strive to make our services affordable!

Our services are complementary to the media! We want to make it seamless for them to book and cast lifestyle experts for their TV shows events, speaker conferences and brands.

Developed by a TV producer for TV producers, our unique platform and personal services helps maximize your national exposure, fine-tune your brand and nurture your talents. We bridge the gap between you and the media.

Our company is for experienced, as well as new and undiscovered on-camera lifestyle experts and hosts. This includes chefs, home cooks, bakers, interior designer experts, fashion experts, makeup artists, travel experts, pet experts, fitness experts, nutrition experts, healthy experts, wellness coaches, relationship experts and bloggers.

Success with us is determined by your passion, performance, creativity, strength of your videos, visuals of your craft, the look of your professional personality pictures and your active presence on social media. It’s vital that we are productive partners in this quest for notoriety. *Please see our on-camera lifestyle expert submission form below!

“I’ve been represented by Swoon Talent for over one year and Donna Benner is extraordinary! Swoon presents and operates much differently from your typical dime-a-dozen talent agency, and for good reasons. Donna is intricately involved in shaping, promoting, and championing her talent. We talk regularly, via phone and email, and our conversations are always insightful. Her decades of experience producing talk shows gives her an unrivaled knowledge of what the media is looking for. Her directory of real relationships she has built with industry decision makers ALONE is worth your submission.”

TV Chef and LA Caterer Marcel Cocit - Swoon Talent

“Donna Benner is very knowledgeable about the industry and goes to bat for her clients. She’s a pleasure to work with and I love the fact that she represents a variety of lifestyle experts. There’s no other agency like Swoon Talent. My wife and I signed with Donna a few months ago and we’re already in talks with a production company about getting our own show. We’re so happy to be represented by Donna.”
