WFAN Contest: I Passed The Initial Screening, Now I Wait

Posted on by Kerel Cooper

I didn’t get a chance to blog about the Mets this morning because I was at Menlo Park Mall for a few hours auditioning for the WFAN Fantasy Phenom Contest. Basically this is a try-out to host your own show on WFAN – for one year.

Today, there were two phases in round one of the audition. First, an initial screening/mini interview. If you pass that then you get a shot to go on stage and “rant” for two minutes about a sports topic. I believe WFAN was only selecting 100 people to go on stage in front of the judges. About 300 or so people showed up. I’m happy to report that I passed the initial screening/mini interview and got a shot to go on stage in front of the judges to “rant” for two minutes. See pics below, I am contesting #24.

My “rant” – I talked for two minutes about my dissatisfaction that a team with financial troubles (Taxas Rangers) were able to land Cliff Lee and the Mets were not. Hat tip to the guy standing in line behind me who gave me the idea for the topic. If I win the contest you’ll be the first guest on my show :)

What’s next – now I wait for WFAN to contact me. WFAN has a few more auditions at various locations. If I make it to round two, that will take place in August. The Finals will be held live on the radio at the end of summer on August 27th…but we are a LONG way away from that. I’ll keep you guys posted if I make it to round two.

Check out a few pics I snapped with my iPhone while I was standing in line today.

    You should have ranted about your dissatisfaction with Carlos Beltran, haha, good luck, I'll be tuning in to see if you get the gig.

    Looks like the Mets need to take these next two games if they are going to gain any ground on the Braves…Go Big Pelf!
