At the WDWNT Network, we are always looking at opportunities to grow our team, and today we are proud to announce a new concept to help us find new staff members:
“Who Wants To Be a Podcaster?” is a necessary evolution of our hiring process for The WDW News Today Podcast. We receive frequent emails from listeners who want to become contributing members on the show. Instead of performing our customary interviewing process, we decided to actually let the listeners of the show pick two new staff members that they’ll be listening to each and every week. Through a preliminary review process of all the entries, we will select 10 contestants to vie for the two positions. In their appearances, the contestants will participate in regular segments on the WDWNT Podcast, as well as some other WDWNT Network programming, to earn votes from the listeners. Every week, the audience will vote for their favorite contestants and every week we will eliminate the contestant with the least number of votes. In this way, we are taking the interactivity to a whole new level. While this may all seem a bit extreme, we truly feel that putting the control of the show in the hands of the listeners will help us find the two best candidates. If you are interested in participating, send us an email at [email protected] before September 24, 2010, with your name, your availability to record (days and times you have to devote to the podcast), and a short description about yourself and your Disney fandom.
We are also looking to add more staff to our technical team at this time, but we won’t be doing it with all the frills of the Podcast reality show concept. If you have any experience in web development or graphic design and would be interested in helping with the day-to-day operations of the WDWNT Network, please contact us by email at [email protected] Very similar to the instructions above, please provide us with your name, availability, and a short description of yourself and your Disney fandom.
