Bram Weinstein Joins DC's Capital Talent Agency As a New Voice

Former ESPN anchor Bram Weinstein has joined Capital Talent Agency as one of its newest voiceover artists.  Weinstein is the host of "The Bram Weinstein Show," currently airing on ESPN 980 in the Washington, DC market, in which he provides a unique perspective on the world of sports, both locally and nationally.

Weinstein, a Montgomery County native and a Springbrook High and American University grad, spent the early years of his broadcasting career in Nebraska. His career skyrocketed when he returned home and became the Redskins' beat reporter and a local media fixture, with his own Saturday show, regular appearances on Comcast SportsNet, and a midday show that eventually became "Redskins Nation."  Weinstein became one of the most recognizable sports broadcasters in the Washington, DC area, and he was eventually persuaded to join ESPN's national team in Bristol, Connecticut.

After seven years with ESPN hosting SportsCenter and appearing in various televised commercials for the network, Weinstein and his family returned to DC to pursue his broadcasting and voiceover career.

"Characters, drama, soap opera--those have been the aspects of sports that have always appealed to me as the first and still undefeated reality show," said Weinstein.  "A benefit of having a long career in broadcasting is that you learn about vocal range as you describe the events and people who make up the wide world of sports.  I've always wanted to put that skill to use in the voiceover sphere and am pleased that Capital Talent Agency is working to make that a reality for me and other artists in this exciting industry."

"Bram's on-air voice not only has the range and quality that makes it perfect for commercial and promo voiceover work, but he has a level of insight and intelligence that makes him a great choice for in-show and other narration, such as audio books," said Roger W. Yoerges, CTA's Chief Executive Officer and head of the agency's voiceover division.  "We have a stable of talented, nationally recognized voiceover artists at CTA and are pleased and proud that Bram, with his wide range of talents, has decided to join us."

Formed in 2009, Capital Talent Agency, LLC, represents professional artists based in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC, New York City, Los Angeles, and elsewhere who work nationally in theater, film, television, and voiceovers.  CTA also represents authors in all genres of fiction and non-fiction, as well as speakers who appear nationally and internationally.  See our website at http://capitaltalentagency.com/.

San Antonio Businessman and Family Donates Land to Further Expansion of San Antonio Playhouse

Business owner John R. "Rick" Aleman, wife Christina, and his children, Richie and Selena, have given The Playhouse San Antonio one of its largest financial gifts from a family donor in recent history with the donation of an 8,000 sq. ft. parcel of land. Located at 725 West Ashby Place, the land is valued at $250,000 and is directly across the street from the theater, making it the perfect location for the Playhouse's future expansion.

        Mr. Aleman obtained the property with thoughts of expanding his company, Selrico Services, business operations.  Selrico is located next door to the donated land.   "Once we decided against expanding our offices, we looked for other ways to utilize the property," said Rick Aleman. "I have been a life-long fan of the theater, probably because I don't have any of that type of talent myself!  The proximity of the property to the theater made our decision an easy one."

        Rick Aleman is the founder of Selrico Services, which offers food service, construction, facilities maintenance, operations and maintenance, and other infrastructure support services to both the public and private sector.  Selrico has proudly supported the U.S. across the world, operating on three continents, multiple countries and 27 states.  Selrico has provided disaster relief domestically including; Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi following hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and Selrico teams have mobilized in support of NATO and UN disaster relief missions worldwide.

        Locally, Selrico is proud to be of service to the City of San Antonio through food service contracts providing meals to seniors, pre-K students, and youth participating in the summer lunch program.  Selrico employs over 150 local, full-time team members who work in support of the food service operations and custodial operations in San Antonio.  Currently, Selrico manages the custodial care of the Alamodome, Historic Market Square, La Villita, and all branches of the San Antonio Public Library System.

        The historic Playhouse, formerly known as the San Antonio Little Theater, with its beautiful neo-classic facade was completed in 1929 and is the nation's oldest city-built playhouse.  The theater is located in San Pedro Park, the first and oldest city park in the United States. The Playhouse, a non-profit organization, prides itself on producing professional-
quality live theater. Upcoming productions include The Hunchback of Notre Dame, All is Bright and Little Women.

        Native San Antonian and Theater CEO /Artistic Director George Green, is humbled by the donation. "This gift will enable us to look at the feasibility of creating various opportunities for our organization.  Some initial thoughts include administration needs, temporary performer housing, and an educational conservatory.  The conservatory/studios would be a place where students of all ages can come for voice, dance, and drama lessons taught by certified professionals." The current footprint of the Theater does not allow for additional office or creative spaces. Once a feasibility study is complete, the Theater will determine the future of the property and implement a Capital Campaign to raise the funds needed to make the dream a reality.

        Aleman hopes that this donation will encourage others to support the Theater, which not only provides entertainment, but helps bring people together, whether it brings to light serious social issues or by offering a humorous diversion from our everyday lives.
