WSCR-AM launches search for new sports reporter

| No Comments

CBS Radio-owned WSCR-AM (670) is launching its own version of a television reality show called "Pepsi Max Score Search." The sport-focused radio station soon will begin holding open auditions to look for Chicago's best undiscovered talent to take on the role of sports reporter for the station.

Auditions will be held at select locations throughout the Chicago area during June. Candidates will be recorded reading a 30-second pre-written script, which will then be posted on the WSCR Web site for review. A panel of broadcast industry experts will identify their top 10 candidates who will then meet with WSCR Program Director Mitch Rosen. Four finalists will be selected from that group. Visitors to the WSCR Web site will be able to vote for their favorite among the four candidates. The winner will be chosen during a live broadcast on July 18.

"We look forward to discovering a new talent and seeing what they can do with the opportunity," said Rosen. Interested parties can register to participate in the "Score Search" at
