Ramage joins Bienstock


News talent agency N.S. Bienstock has added Rick Ramage to its list of agents.

Ramage comes to New York-based Bienstock from Ken Lindner & Associates, where he worked for nine years in various capacities including executive vp. He will move from Los Angeles to New York.

Ramage's clients at Lindner included WCBS-TV anchor Kristine Johnson, NBC's "Today" co-host Natalie Morales and Fox Sports' Pam Oliver, among others. It wasn't immediately clear how many of Ramage's clients would move with him.

He will join a company that has had a long track record in representing the top network and local TV talent in the news business. Ramage joins Bienstock president Richard Leibner, lead local TV agent Peter Goldberg and the rest of the staff. Leibner said that Ramage was a "perfect addition" to the team and makes the company's agent business that much stronger.

Before becoming an agent, Ramage won Emmys as a producer and assignment editor at KTLA Los Angeles.
