At this point, you know about it. The 2nd ANNUAL KSTV CASTING CALL starts on Saturday. You now have the opportunity to try out to become one of the co-hosts for KSTV and join me on the air covering UK sports. If you win, you will be able to be a co-host in studio, do interviews on the road and attend games as a KSTV reporter, covering the team you love and getting valuable experience for a career you will enjoy. So why wouldn't you do it? The reality is that covering sports is about the most fun you can have and at KSTV/KSR, we make fun the #1 priority. So you want to be a part of it. And if you are going to try out, this Saturday in Northern Kentucky makes a lot of sense as the place for you to do it. At each tryout, you will be competing against the others in your location and we expect big crowds in Lexington and Louisville. So Northern Kentucky gives you the best chance to advance. Here are the dates and locations: The KSTV CASTING CALL AUDITIONS: DATES & LOCATIONS April 21st — Northern Kentucky — Florence Insight Communications Studio, 7906 Dixie Highway, Florence, KY 41042 Registration from 8AM to 10AM April 28th — Lexington, Kentucky Lyric Theatre & Cultural Art Center, 300 E. 3rd Street, Lexington, KY 40508 Registration from 8AM to 10AM May 12th — Louisville, Kentucky Swope Auto Center, 10 Swope Autocenter Drive, Louisville, KY 40299 Registration from 8AM to 10AM At each of these stops, you must arrive sometime between 8 am-10 am. Be dressed as if you were going to be on television and to put your best foot forward. From there, you will go through the THREE STEPS to making the next round: STEP ONE: A first audition in which you meet with a KSTV judge and they interview you on your knowledge of UK sports and ability to be a broadcaster. STEP TWO: A group meeting at 11:30 am in which you are told if you have made the afternoon final "TV Round" before our second panel of judges. STEP THREE: A second audition in the afternoon in which you do a one-on-one debate with Perrin Johnson (former UL player) or Leslie Neeley (last year's KSTV Casting Call winner) while being judged by a three-judge panel. This part of the Audition will air on KSTV throughout the course of May. There is simply no reason for you not to do it. If you have always dreamed about covering sports or simply would like to try your hand at something new, now is the time. Here are a couple of examples of tryouts from last year. Get ready for your shot and we will see you on Saturday with the entire KSTV crew:
