Sandra brings a wealth of experience to Prince Media Group. For more than two decades, Sandra Chapman worked as a distinguished Investigative Reporter,  researching, writing and breaking down complex issues for public consumption. 

Her work has led to legislative changes across the State of Indiana, and prompted critical policy changes within government agencies, schools, healthcare and law enforcement. She has reported on critical incidents and inextricably understands the inner-workings of crisis driven media events. Sandra also comprehends the power of compelling storytelling.

Prince Media Group is a boutique media consulting firm based in Indianapolis, Indiana specializing in content development and production, strategic  communications, crisis communications and Public Speaking.

Founded in 2012 as a book marketing company, Sandra Chapman – a National Award-winning Investigative Reporter – named Prince Media Group in honor of her father, Prince Chapman. As a young man, Prince excelled at Fort Wayne Newspapers, becoming one of the only African American students in his senior class in Fort Wayne to be selected as an all-city scholarship finalist. Prince was an accomplished tradesman and business owner who shared with his daughter the joy of reading a daily newspaper. In fact, it sparked Sandra’s love for journalism. She also credits her parents’ work ethic, commitment to community relationships and personal excellence to her own successful career as a broadcast journalist.
