ESPN CALLING ALL DREAMERS FOR DREAM JOB: CASTING FOR SEASONS TWO AND THREE TO BEGIN JUNE 29

Help Wanted: SportsCenter Anchor and Play-by-Play Announcer Sports fans with aspirations of being a SportsCenter anchor or calling play-by-play on ESPN will get a chance to follow in the footsteps of Dream Job winner Mike Hall, who will be making his SportsCenter debut in July, by trying out for seasons two and three of the network's hit reality series. At stake this time, SportsCenter anchor and play-by- play announcer positions. Auditions for both shows will be held during a nationwide casting tour that will start June 29 in New York. Hosted by Stuart Scott, the second season of Dream Job will debut Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. ET. The one-hour show will be aired Tuesdays at 7 p.m. for nine weeks with the winner being named the newest SportsCenter anchor. The third season will search for a play-by- play announcer and will be aired beginning February, 2005. Both elimination-style shows will consist of a panel of judges with viewers voting on contestants' aptitudes in various sports-related tasks. The initial casting tour will visit 14 major U.S. cities, concluding in Orlando, Fla. on July 30. Finals will be held August 9-11 in New York.

Contestant hopefuls can visit ESPN.com Search: Dream Job for eligibility rules and city-specific audition details. ESPN will not accept video entries.
