CBS RADIO Sports WFAN/NEW YORK continues its Fantasy Phenom Challenge at ROOSEVELT FIELD MALL in GARDEN CITY, NY. Contestants in this unique contest will have an opportunity to earn an on-air shift on Sports Radio 66, WFAN.
Those that pass the initial phase will audition in front of a panel of judges including BOOMER & CARTON Morning Show and news anchor TRACY BURGESS. Subsequent auditions will be held at area malls through the end of JULY; several local BUFFALO WILD WINGS establishments will host qualifying rounds.
"WFAN is ready to add someone to the payroll," CBS RADIO/NEW YORK VP/Programming and WFAN OM MARK CHERNOFF said. "We know jobs in radio are hard to come by but we're doing our part to identify talent and give someone a shot to host their own show on the FAN. Our own JOE BENIGNO got his start at the FAN through a similar contest 15 years ago and we're hoping to find talent this time around to be with us for another 15. It guarantees to be a lot of fun."
