No and I don’t mean like, you know, the anchor that you see tattoed on Popeye’s muscles!
No, not this at al!
What I DO mean is an actual anchor or rather, a HOST for the ESPN STAR Sports channel! Sounds unbelievable? Well, like they always say, seeing is believing!
That’s right, that ang moh guy could be YOU! As you will have noticed, the no. 1 sports network in Asia, ESPN STAR Sports has teamed up with SKYPE to search for a guest news anchor through their new online contest, Skype STAR Commentator.
All you have to do, really, is to upload a video of yourself
presenting a selected news item from the official site. If you make it, you could be the selected winner to run a segment yourself on ESPN’s SportsCenter Asia, a sports news programme that is beamed out to 24 countries across the region… SCARY I know!!
Just log on to www.espnstar.com/starcommentator, and using any webcam that should be in most laptops (or you can get cheaply la!), you just need to make a recording of yourself reading off a selected script and submit your auditions online. Simple? Yeap!
Top 16 finalists, selected by the ESS–Skype team will be interviewed via Skype video calling, for a chance to win over $5,000 worth of prizes as well as a once-in-a-life time opportunity to spend a day at the ESS studios and present a segment on ESPN’s SportsCenter Asia!
So it’s going to be worth a try anyway! Who knows… you could end up being a famous newscaster earning lots of $$$ and going for live games as a VIP. Sounds good?
Now here’s the catch…
There’s only 3 more days left to make your submission, so quickly do it now!!!
(Before 1st of November 2009)
What, you say you need some recommendation on how to set you apart from the rest?
Ok fine, don’t say I didn’t help…
This is what I did! 😀
