KDKA-FM hosting open auditions

93.7 KDKASaturday, May 25 will be the first of five open audition opportunities where entrants will have an opportunity to host a program broadcast weekends on Sports Radio 93.7 The Fan (KDKA-FM). The location for this event will be Beer and Pop 4 Less on Washington Pike in Bridgeville.

At the open auditions, participants will be judged by station personnel on their ability to rant on a random sports topic. Ten entrants from the open auditions will be selected to move on to the semi-final round to be held at the Tilted Kill on the North Shore on June 24. From there, the top four entrants will move on to the final round at Sidelines Bar and Grill in Sewickley to be judged during a live broadcast with Andrew Fillipponi on June 27.

KDKA-FM’s program director, Ryan Maguire said, “We’re looking for the next great Pittsburgh Sports Talk Show host, someone who can grow into a superstar. We’re eager to see which member of this passionate fan base can take advantage of this very rare opportunity.”
