"Social Business Television" Tells Former Pro Golfer's Entrepreneurial Story.

spark360 host Renay San Miguel interviews Jun Lee, CEO of Designs by Jun

"The story behind the founding of Jun's company involves all the elements you look for in a compelling news feature," said spark360 host/managing editor Renay San Miguel.

spark360, a new, innovative business news program that blends broadcast network-style storytelling with the power of online video and social media, launched Wednesday with the story of an athlete-turned-entrepreneur who fashioned a new career - in sports fashion - from the wreckage of a potentially tragic auto accident.

Designs by Jun , founded in 2007 by former pro golfer Jun Lee, is the first featured video on the new spark360.tv portal. Her interview with spark360 host/managing editor Renay San Miguel - along with footage of Lee on the course at the Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas - is now available on the exclusive spark360 distribution platform, which includes placement on key online video portals such as YouTube and Google Video; spark-branded pages on the top social media networks Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn; a podcast prepared for the Apple iTunes store and integration into mobile applications developed for iPhones, iPod Touches and the forthcoming iPad.

Senior Producer Steven Swaim said, “Designs by Jun was an ideal company to launch the spark360 concept with. Her amazing story coupled with her unbridled passion for her company was one that we felt would translate well to the screen.”

Jun Lee first picked up a golf club at the age of five. Her mother encouraged her to practice and compete, and by the age of 15 she was shooting in the low 70s playing the courses around her home near Seguin, Texas. She had earned a full scholarship to San Jose State University, which at the time had the number one NCAA women's golf team. She had already excelled on the Junior tour and was competing professionally - but an auto accident resulted in damage to discs in her neck and back. With her pro playing days over, Jun had to focus on other ways to compete, and she remembered the frustrations she felt choosing clothes to play in while on the tour. The result is Designs by Jun, with Lee as president and chief designer. It's a sports apparel firm that caters to women golfers who want to hit the golf course wearing stylish clothes, but also want to know that what they're wearing is functional and won't get in the way of victory on the greens.

"The story behind the founding of Jun's company involves all the elements you look for in a compelling news feature," said spark360 host/managing editor Renay San Miguel. "There's certainly enough drama with the car accident that literally spun her into a new direction in life. She was on her way to a successful career on the LPGA tour, and then she had to make some adjustments. But pro athletes do that all the time when competing, and Designs by Jun is her way of channeling her competitive 'spark,' if you will, into a lucrative yet challenging industry - the sport apparel market."

"To transition into business, there are so many tough issues that you have to encounter and have to overcome," Lee told San Miguel. "So I take each obstacle as a shot and you just stay in the moment, stay in present and get over that hurdle that way. I know what women want on the golf course. So yes, I’m very competitive. There are great companies out there and they are very established. At the same time, I have the design and innovation, and I feel like that’s how I can compete."
