Leigh Costa

Growing up in Houston, Texas, with parents in professional sports and media, I developed a passion for sales and marketing. After gaining experience in promotions and marketing with Moet Hennessy, I secured an ad sales position at a well-known local sports radio station in DFW. Through extensive training in radio, digital advertising, and marketing, I honed my skills in target audience scheduling, rate negotiation, spot production, and athlete collaborations.

In 2014, I founded a full-service advertising and media agency specializing in sports marketing. Recognizing the potential to help clients further by working with all radio stations, digital platforms, billboards, local network and cable television, and streaming television, my agency, Costa Advertising and Marketing, has expanded its services to support the growth of all local businesses, regardless of their target demographic.
