The winning Cubs radio analyst audition tape

Posted on Dec 8, 2013 in Cubs, Media Hacks |


Alert the affiliates because the winning WGN Radio Cubs color analyst audition “tape” has been submitted.  Sure, the Cubs leaked that it was down to the underwhelming duo of Todd Hollandsworth and Ron Coomer for the job, but the fact that they got my Twitter account suspended to keep me silent about just how well my audition went…well, it’s pretty obvious that I’m getting the job.

I expect the announcement any day now, probably at the Winter Meetings where the assembled horde of national baseball media can spend days telling the Cubs what an inspired and brilliant decision they made.

I worked really hard on this audition, and it took me a good five minutes and twenty seconds to finish it.

The way it worked was they sent me three scenarios to respond to, all prompts from my new broadcast partner and best friend Pat Hughes.  It’s pretty safe to say that I clearly nailed them.

The Cubs might get mad at me for leaking the winning audition recording, but you, the intrepid readers of Desipio deserve the best.

Or me.

Whatever.
