About StoryBridge

WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF TRUE STORIES.

At StoryBridge.tv, we bring decades of award-winning experience to the craft of video storytelling. We've produced stories ranging from serious to silly, in locations from New York to New Orleans... Los Angeles to Lima.  Learn how our unique brand of emotionally-authentic, journalistic storytelling will bring your stories to life.

StoryBridge.tv was born when veteran broadcast journalists Katy Sai and Jay Olsen decided to trade in crime reports and car crashes for stories we care about -- stories that inspire, enlighten and spark action.

We know even the best story needs the right strategy to find its audience.  With StoryBridge, we combine quality storytelling with interactive technology to make it easy to showcase and share stories that move you. 

The stories we've produced have been broadcast on national television, been promoted on hundreds of websites and viewed in more than fifty countries. Watch the video and see our story.

KATY SAI wants to hear your story.  As an immigrant from Thailand, she learned to speak English by asking questions, and she never stops asking... just ask her kids. Katy spent 19 years behind the news anchor desk at CBS affiliates in the Midwest, but her passion was always community service reporting. She cycled hundreds of miles covering the AIDS ride, created a Community Baby Shower that's become a model for other cities and orchestrated a civic journalism project to document and construct a City of Madison Time Capsule. Katy loves to read, garden, play the piano and ride her bike, but rarely at the same time.

 

 

JAY OLSEN has a camera and he’s not afraid to use it. He’s an award-winning videojournalist with 30 years in the biz, honored for his coverage of all kinds of stories -- from the National Guard recovery efforts in New Orleans to a visually caffeinated series on homegrown coffee shops. Jay is an avid fan of the Beatles, Seinfeld, and the Simpsons. When he’s not collecting memorabilia, you’ll find him playing the guitar, playing Monopoly, or riding his bike.

 

 

 

PAUL ESCALANTE has been around the world and back again, with diplomas from Mexico, Argentina, and the University of Minnesota. The Madison native is a jack of all trades, serving StoryBridge as a videographer, editor, producer, graphic designer, and when necessary, foreign language translator. While in Mexico, Paul also trained as a boxer, which comes in handy when dealing with difficult grips and audio techs.

 

 

 

PAM COSHUN; a.k.a. Pam Tauscher; a.k.a. Mom. She may have several identities but a common thread ties them all together:  Pam loves to write.  She's been at it from her first job at her high school newspaper, to 25 years telling stories in broadcast news from Louisiana to Wisconsin, to writing and blogging about family life in Dane County.  She still considers getting paid to write as the greatest achievement in her professional life.  If she’s not busy on a deadline, she’s busy watching her son’s sporting events, gardening, cooking, or hanging out with the rescue animals that share her family’s home.
