‘Clinic All Clear Dream Job’ hunts for sports presenter

The talent hunt show ‘Clinic All Clear Dream Job’ goes on air from September 21 on ESPN STAR Sports. The show is targetted at the sports fanatic who has it in him/her to follow his passion to become an on-air presenter. The talent search offers a one-year contract with ESPN Software India Pvt. Ltd as a presenter on its newly launched channel, Star Cricket.

The jury for the second edition of this show will include eminent names like Ravi Shastri, Wasim Akram, Alan Wilkins, John Dykes and Steve Dawson. ESPN STAR Sports has also roped in noted actor and cricket presenter Mandira Bedi as a celebrity judge. Along with her, Sharon van Zwieten, Executive Producer-News, ESPN STAR Sports, is also playing a critical role in the jury.

The 40 shortlisted candidates comprise a very interesting mix of professionals like lawyers, financial analysts, radio jockeys, VPs of companies, IIT and IIM pass-outs, housewives and undergraduates, among others.

R C Venkateish, Managing Director, ESPN Software India Pvt. Ltd said, “It is very interesting to note that many professionals doing well in their fields are interested in trying out their luck as a commentator. ‘Clinic All Clear Dream Job’ has received an overwhelming response from sports enthusiasts coming from different walks of life. The high intellectual quotient of these contestants has made the show very engaging.”

In the initial screening round, interested contestants submitted their voice recording through mobile phones or recorded tapes. The one-minute voice commentary was judged by ESPN STAR Sports and the selected participants were auditioned in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata between August 18 and September 8 this year.

Of the shortlisted 40 contestants, 18 will make it to the studio round, and only four semi-finalists will make it to Sydney for an experience of a lifetime. Viewers will see the contestants live during the semi-finals and also vote for their favourite presenter to reach the final round. In the final round, the top two will go to the ESPN STAR Sports Studios at Singapore where each of them will get to do a story live on SportsCenter. The two will have a final job interview with the Managing Director of ESPN STAR Sports and the winner will be awarded a one-year contract as a Sports Presenter thereafter.
