Hi. I need your vote on Facebook. Would you take a minute and vote here?
If you’ve been following or reading this blog for any amount of time, you know I like to talk about politics. With the National Republican Convention in August, the local news station (and one of the largest, if not the largest, local news outlets in the country), is sending one person on an all expenses paid trip to the convention as a “Star Correspondent.”
I want to be that Star Correspondent.
Think about all the great stuff I could post here: interviews, pictures, behind the scenes stories, on the floor discussions, the drama around Ron Paul’s delegates, the VP selection, and, the best part, Mitt Romney for President!
Phew. Gets me excited just thinking about it.
Would you mind taking a moment to vote here?
Stage one of the contest requires a video submission (you can find mine below). The top five vote recipients on Facebook, after passing a “phone interview” are invited to the Doug Wright Show for Stage Two. That’s where it gets fun:
The top five finalists come into the KSL studios the week of June 25, 2012 and join Doug Wright on his Talk Show from 8:30 am to 10:00 am. Each finalist will get their chance to “sell” themselves before the listening audience by talking about the issues of the day (to be selected by Doug Wright and KSL NewsRadio) for 30 seconds. All five contestants will be required to be in attendance on Monday, June 25, 2012. At the end of Doug Wright’s show, KSL NewsRadio will post photos of each finalist, their bio’s, an audio clip of them during the show and allow the listening audience to vote for who they would like to represent them as the guest correspondent at the Republican National Convention.
And so on. The process eventually eliminates all but one (“THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!”)…
But first, I need your votes on Facebook. Would you take a moment and vote for my submission here? I would very much appreciate your support.
And now the video (and yes, I know: I’ve got a face that’s made for blogging, not broadcast journalism…thank heavens it’s KSL Radio running the contest, not KSL TV).
