Public Radio Seeks Next Big Host, 'AI' Style
March 1, 2007 at 2:55 PM (PT)
Do you have what it takes to be public radio's next great host? Now is your chance. The PUBLIC RADIO EXCHANGE (PRX), supported by a grant from the CORPORATION FOR PUBLIC BROADCASTING (CPB), is conducting a search to find new talent for public radio, and giving away over $70,000 along the way.
"Public Radio Talent Quest" contestants will compete in four rounds of auditions and on-air challenges. Thousands of public radio listeners will cast their votes online, and a panel of public radio professionals and celebrity judges will help winnow the field from hundreds of entrants to the final group of three -- each of whom will get to produce a pilot show for public radio. When all is said and done, the three winners and their pilot shows will be posted online and presented to the CPB for possible further funding and national distribution.
