Agent155 Media Group Adds MTV Networks Music Programming Director and Former iTunes Senior Producer to Its Board

Joseph McKesson's Vision and Extensive Industry Experience Tapped to Lead the Agent155.com Digital Revolution

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Market Wire - Jun 07, 2005) -- Agent155 Media Group, Inc. (OTC: AGMG), a provider of multi-media content management tools, providing exposure, networking and collaboration opportunities to models, performers, artists, athletes, musicians, filmmakers and agencies worldwide, today announced that it has added MTV Networks, a subsidiary of Viacom (NYSE: VIA) Music Programming Director Joseph McKesson to its Board.

McKesson's experience includes a Senior Producer position with iTunes Music Store, a division of Apple Computer (NASDAQ: AAPL), where he oversaw the cyber DJ tools, content operations, label relations for over 200 labels and metadata standards projects. McKesson has always been at the forefront of digital media. As an undergraduate at Indiana University he worked on one of the very first digital music projects in the country, The Variations Music Project at the William and Gayle Cook Music Library, sponsored by IBM.

"Agent155.com is the foundation of something big and unique for artists in the digital space," commented McKesson. "With Agent155.com as a media partner to digital services, the possibilities are endless. The platform is technically solid, and for the artist, limited only by their imaginations." He added, "As a board member for Agent155 Media Group I will bring all my experience, ideas, colleagues and passion to help create a truly definitive arts experience. I believe in Agent155.com, and I will put all my energy into making it the best destination for artists on the internet."

Early in his career, McKesson started his own production company, Shared Thunder, which produced works for Apple Computer, MarchFirst, Planet Out and the LA Film Festival. As a consultant he has developed digital media architecture for Kinko's, a part of FedEx Kinko's, Chiat-Day, and Mattel, before landing a position at Apple Computer as their first Digital Asset Manager. McKesson helped to develop a digital database for the graphic design, motion graphics, and marketing departments within Apple. After the iTunes launch, he moved into programming and label relations as a Music Director, programming genre pages, playlists and researching indie music labels for iTunes.

Currently, McKesson is a Director in Music Programming working for MTV Networks, where he is contributing to all of the MTV Networks digital media initiatives.

Christopher Martinez, CEO of Agent155 Media Group, stated, "This is an unbelievably positive step for our company. Joe is the kind of industry professional Agent155.com needs to jump to the next level. With his extensive experience, contacts and understanding of the industry, we will be able to penetrate the market more effectively and align the Agent155.com brand with top tier industry players."
