Tryouts for on-air positions in news and entertainment at TV2 will be this Tuesday, Jan. 10 in Franklin Hall on the bottom floor in the TV2 Studio.
Entertainment tryouts: Entertainment shows include, Sports Corner, The Blurb, The Agenda, and Whats Up Weekly. They will be taking place from 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm in the TV2 Studio. If you can not make this time for entertainment, we are flexible. Email Lori Cantor with concerns (email@example.com).
News tryouts: Tryouts for news will follow entertainment and should begin around 5:00 p.m. They will run from 5:30 pm until 10:00 pm. If it needs to run longer than that we will adjust accordingly.
Dress Code: Please dress professionally. If you do not have the proper attire, you are still able to tryout, but we ask that all participants dress respectably.
Process: Please try to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the tryout session and be aware that it may be crowded. Pick up an application and sign in at the table outside of the studio. Students will be there to assist you. Fill out and turn in the application and wait for your turn to try out. While waiting, you will be able to review practice scripts. When it is your turn, a student will lead you into the studio to the news desk where you will read a few stories from the teleprompter. This should only take a few minutes.
There are many positions to be filled including:
- Entertainment show anchor, reporter, sketch team etc.
- Newscast talent includes anchor, weather, sports anchor and correspondent.
TV2 has 15 shows a week – providing ample opportunity for students to gain experience and succeed in various parts of television production.
TV2 is not just for broadcast majors, it is for all Kent State students. We are always open to new people!
NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
