‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Publicist Alyssa Schimel Joins Kovert Creative

Former NBC Page will focus on Programming and Content

In-house “Jimmy Kimmel Live” publicist Alyssa Schimel has joined Kovert Creative to focus on its programming and content business.

Prior to her work on the ABC late-night show, Schimel worked at PMK*BNC and NBC Universal. She started her career in New York as an NBC page.

Schimel will be keeping “Jimmy Kimmel Live” as a client. She’ll also work with Bill Simmons’ TheRinger.com, Fatherly.com, OBB Pictures, Best-Selling author Brad Meltzer and WeVillage.

“You would be hard pressed to find someone who works harder and cares more about her work than Alyssa, we couldn’t be more excited to have her join the team,” Kovert Creative co-CEO Lewis Kay said in a statement.

Kovert is a bi-coastal, creatively-driven agency bringing together brands and talent in the core areas of Digital Services, Personal Representation, Brand Marketing & Communications. Clients include Cadillac, Jimmy Kimmel, Jack Black, Amy Poehler, Adam Devine, Will Arnett, Sarah Silverman, Will Forte and Fox Sports.

Kay’s company is a joint venture with WME-IMG, but it operates independently.
