CHED Searching For New Football Voice
February 2, 2010 at 3:56 PM (PT)
CORUS Talk CHED-A/EDMONTON has launched its search for a new play-by-play voice for the CFL's EDMONTON ESKIMOS to replace BRYAN HALL, who retired from the post after the 2009 season. The EDMONTON JOURNAL reports that CHED is advertising for the position, with submissions due FRIDAY, and PD/afternoon anchor SYD SMITH says that he has already received a number of applicants.
Color commentator DAVE CAMPBELL, GLOBAL TV's JOHN SEXSMITH, and current junior hockey VANCOUVER GIANTS and former EDMONTON OILERS color commentator MORLEY SCOTT are among those the JOURNAL expects to be in the running for the play-by-play slot.
