International Producers and Creatives

Sta’ Phocused is the brainchild of Lathea S. Smyles, one of the most reputed Producers within the Greater Chicago market, most notably in the realms of broadcast and entertainment production. Over the last decade or so, Smyles’ has gathered invaluable experience within all aspects of television and live entertainment production. Smyles has received a number of accolades, including recognition from the Emmy’s for her production, ‘Today’s Healthy Woman’, created for the Comcast Network, as well as a Crystal Award for an Aviation and Pilot Training documentary.

Recognized by fellow members in the industry as one of the most innovative and creative thinkers within the industry, Smyles has undertaken a number of projects that have taken her to huge venues across the nation. Known for her ability to develop creative formats, in keeping with attendee, client and network desires, Smyles has been an integral cog in the broadcast programming and live entertainment industry in recent years.

Smyles received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Television Production from the acclaimed Columbia College in Chicago before going on to pursue a Master’s degree in Media Management and Arts Entertainment.

She is also closely affiliated to the National Association for Female Executives and the National Association of Minorities in Cable.

My Experience with Lathea Smyles has been nothing short of good success. The shows that were produced with her production company’s assistance made the building and structuring of the shows most gratifying and effective.
