I'm not sure how many of you have seen that the Cubs are looking for their next PA announcer for Wrigley Field.  (http://cubs.careerbuilder.com/)

I'm applying for the job, and since I'm 25 with only a year's experience in radio, I'm probably most definitely a long shot.  Not every day do you get to test yourself against thousands of other people =)

Anyhow, you don't need to vote or anything, I could just use as much positive energy going into it as I can get - and I know this is the place for that!


p.s. I'll let y'all know how it goes...  I shot my youtube video/script reading yesterday, so I can post that if anyone actually wants to see it.

Thank you, 'paug!


Well, here's the video.  I was happier with it right after the fact.  The angle is kind of funny... I blame my photographer  :wink:
Also, the volume is kind of low, so I think it requires headphones for full effect.
