March 16, 2012 at 4:42 AM (PT)
With DAN SILEO's exit from mornings at CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WDAE-A (THE SPORTS ANIMAL)/TAMPA (NET NEWS 3/13), PD STEVE VERSNICK tells ALL ACCESS that the station is in search of a new host.
The station, flagship for the BUCCANEERS, RAYS, LIGHTNING, and UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA and TAMPA BAY affiliate for the UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, is, according to the station's job listing at ALL ACCESS, "looking for a show that is entertaining, compelling, conversational, and loves to cover the local sports scene" and "spurs interaction with fans, can build relationships with teams and embraces utilizing digital media." Candidates have to "drop any team allegiances to cover TAMPA BAY sports thoroughly and in a professional manner" and must have a minimum of 3-5 years' experience covering local sports, although previous on-air hosting experience isn’t required.
VERSNICK is accepting resumes and MP3s at firstname.lastname@example.org and also by mail (STEVE VERSNICK, Program Director, 620 WDAE, 4002 W. Gandy Boulevard, TAMPA, FL 33611). No calls, EOE.
