Dream Job, Chicago Cubs Looking for Wrigley Field Announcer
I was born on the south side of Chicago, and I am not a White Sox Fan. Generally Sox fans are from the southside, and Cubs fans are Northside's. I have been a diehard Cubs fan since I was 12. What a thrill it was to walk into Wrigley Field the first time, the summer smell of the vines on the outfield wall, and the the way that legendary ball park looked. It was truly Magical.
I remember the Cubs play by play announcer Jack Brickhouse, He was amazing.
This is a dream job for me, and it may be for you as well. Saw this from nbcchicago.com and my eyes lit up. Are you kidding me, I can get paid to watch my Cubbies at all home games in the friendly confines.
The Chicago Cubs are looking to hire a new public address announcer to be the voice of the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
The Public Address Announcer is responsible for keeping fans, players and media informed with game information, as well as communicating various messaging to fans," the listing, which was posted this week, states. "This includes, but is not limited to, line-up and substitutions, sponsorship reads, ceremonies, wayfinding messages, safety messaging and scoring decisions.
If you apply you must have strong vocal talent, excellent enunciation skills, reading skills, strong public speaking skills, a strong knowledge of baseball, flexible hours and more. Of course you would have to be at all 81 regular season home games for the Cubs.
