VIOLONE

President

As the founder of Media Squared Inc, an award-winning broadcast television production company, I am so proud of my team and all that we have accomplished.  During the past 20 years, the company has become one of New York’s leading providers of packaged television shows. Prior to starting M2, I founded ACS Sports, a company that grew to 80 employees with offices in New York, Baltimore, and stadiums across the country.  By 1999, ACS Sports held the Internet rights to 21 NFL, MLB and NHL teams, and portal web sites for the WTA, LPGA and Minor League Baseball.  My experience in production has helped me to develop the strongest team, the most creative output, and wonderful long-lasting partnerships.  We look forward to partnering with you and telling your story.

Pisanti

Senior Producer

Over my past 20 years at Media Squared, we’ve worked on a wide variety of exciting projects. Throughout that time I’ve been Senior Producer of Yankees Magazine where I've had the unique opportunity to develop relationships with top tier clientele. We’ve earned over 10 New York Emmy nominations for our work, including a win in 2017. I'm passionate about my role at Media Squared and excited about future projects with this creative company.

We've become award winning content creators, and the opportunity to bring emotive stories to life has been incredibly fulfilling.

Coordinating Producer

As a visual storyteller with roots in journalism, working at Media Squared has allowed me to both challenge and grow my creativity both behind the camera and in the editing suite. I enjoy sports, family, travel, and stories that unify.

TJ

Harrington

Coordinating Producer

As a lifelong fan of the Yankees and Nets, peeling back the layers of approach these professional athletes bring to their work is both fascinating and instructive. Their stories of lofty goals achieved through hard work can be applied across so many walks of life, and are ones I enjoy telling.
