Wilson Media was established in 2001 by Robert Wilson to represent authors and their written works to book publishers, as well as to filmmakers, theatrical producers and other media.
The agency represents authors whose original works cover a wide range of topics, in categories that include sports, history, biography, religion/faith, politics, current affairs, business, memoir and popular culture. A number of titles have achieved bestseller status. Bill Madden's Steinbrenner was a New York Times bestseller for 12 consecutive weeks. Although the primary focus of the agency is to provide full-service representation to authors of adult nonfiction, a separate branch offers representation to authors of middle-grade, young adult, and new adult fiction.
Clients represented by Wilson Media include the dean of American sports writers, Roger Kahn; winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Sydney Schanberg; and the distinguished American historian, David Pietrusza. The agency has earned a distinction in the industry for its representation of current and former professional athletes, including Don Zimmer, Bobby Murcer, Bill Rodgers, Raymond Berry, Davey Johnson, Bud Harrelson, Mookie Wilson, Joanne McCallie and Tim McCarver.
