We had the good fortune of connecting with Frenchy Nicolas and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Frenchy, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I decided to create the ‘Voices of the League Network’ after working in sports for 10 years. As a host and entertainer I’d always get questions from others looking to get in the door but didn’t know how. I also wanted something of my own where I’d be able to help other succeed and navigate the world of sports entertainment.

What should our readers know about your business?
The Voices of the league network is a media network specializing in molding high performance public speakers & host in sports and live events. I help emcees and host work in sports; whether thats the NBA, WNBA or MLB, it feels great to now be able to use my contacts to help those looking to do the work.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Theres something going on in LA and if you work in the industry, there’s even more things going on.

First breakfast: Id highly suggest ‘All Day Baby’ in silver lake for a good breakfast sandwich.
For lunch: Swing by Culver City’s ‘Rush Street’. Their happy hour menu is great and the food is even better. Theres also tons to do in the area such as the Culver Hotel, Sony Studios and Platform (cool outdoor mall)
For Dinner: I’d suggest Bacari (everything is good) or Beauty&Essex. The ambience at both of these places are great.

LA’s tricky when it comes to partying (especially if you’re a guy without a flock of women) but I enjoy break room 86 in Koreatown for some good music and karaoke.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
When I first got started someone helped me, so its been very important for me to give back. An extra special shoutout to Lauren Trusty and Jason Negron who were the two people that pushed me and continues to be very supportive of my career. These two saw something in me and pushed me to do it.
