KDKA-FM launches open auditions for its Next Fan Host contest beginning Saturday and running through June 19. Participants will be judged by Sports Radio 93.7 The Fan and will get to "rant" on a random sports topic.
The eventual winner from the live on-air June 27 final gets a chance to host his or her own show.
"We're looking for the next great Pittsburgh talk show host, someone who can grow into a superstar," said Ryan Maguire, KDKA-FM program director.
Beginning Saturday at Beer and Pop 4 Less (Saturday 11 a.m.-1 p.m.) in Collier, upcoming auditions include Dad's Pub & Grub in Monroeville (Wednesday, 7-9 p.m.), Cricket Wireless in Oakland (June 6, 4-6 p.m.), Joey D's Bar and Grille in Harmarville (June 10, 7-9 p.m.) and Jergel's Rhythm Grille in Marshall (June 19, 7-9 p.m.).
Entrants must be 18 or older and reside in the Pittsburgh metro area, and the chance to try out is not guaranteed. For more information, go to www.937thefan.com/host.
