"Chicago Huddle" still seeking its new announcer

| 1 Comment

Huddle40.jpgThey came in droves on Tuesday -- 175 hopeful females and one male -- to audition for an announcer role on ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7's "Chicago Huddle" Sunday morning football program, hosted by WLS weekend sports anchor Ryan Chiaverini. Naming a winner, however, is turning into a protracted (but fun we hope) process. WLS will post 10 quarterfinalists on its Web site,, next Monday for viewers to vote for their favorite. With that vote taken into consideration, the field will be narrowed to five semi-finalists to compete in a second audition on Aug. 25, at which judges will select two finalists. The final two contestants will appear on the first "Huddle" show that airs on Sept. 13. The winner will be announced at the end of that show.

The Voting has already started. Shae, Lauren and Chelsea are the best. But I had to go with Lauren because she didn't have to read off the paper and she didn't mess up.
