Nicole Sanzio is a music industry authority in media licensing, rights and clearances. As the owner of InDigi Music — and its parent company, Multi Music & Media Group, LLC — Nicole has single-handedly placed various styles of music and compositions in film, network television, and other multi-media platforms. Her unique accomplishments within the corporate world of media licensing, combined with her success as a business owner, has made her a sought after expert within the fast-changing industries of licensing / publishing, royalties and copyright.
Nicole’s career began in college when she was recruited to work with music publishing giant, EMI Music Publishing. Upon graduation from Montclair State University, she accepted a position with BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) as a Royalty Administrator and Media Licensing Assistant. Her knowledge of royalty distribution amongst writers and publishers and her natural ability would pave the way for a move to VH1, where Nicole was hired as Rights & Clearances Coordinator. She would soon be promoted to Senior Coordinator within the Music & Media Licensing Department at MTV Networks, where she specialized in protecting the rights and interests of writers, publishers and other copyright owners of third-party materials within MTV properties such as the Video Music Awards, MTV Movie Awards, Super Bowl Halftime Show, TRL, DFX and many more. While at MTV, Nicole took a gamble on her knowledge and brokered the licensing of music from independent writers, composers and producers to the network; it paid off. Her placements were featured on a host of Viacom programming including the Video Music Awards, “Cribs”, “TRL”, “Pimp My Ride”, “My Super Sweet 16”, VH1’s “Best Week Ever”, “MADE”, “Punk’d”, “My Life Translated”, “Discover and Download”, “Diary” and more. In addition, she would land placements outside of the network on FOX’s Speed Channel “Unique Whips” and NBC’s Bravo Network “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List”, to name a few.
