Audacy's 2400Sports is seeking a fresh, charismatic and knowledgeable podcast talent to co-host its new flagship Red Sox podcast launching in Q1 2022.
The show (final title TBD) will break down some of the top storylines, rumors, and subplots happening in and around the team. Additionally, with access to current and former Red Sox personnel the show will look to reach fans with unparalleled affection and vigor.
The new co-host will be paired with an established Red Sox podcast talent - and will be counted on to provide their unique, engaged, and passionate perspective during each show. The co-host will need to work with producers and fellow talent to develop show run-downs, come prepared with original and informed opinions, and help deliver top-level content on a weekly basis.
We are looking for somebody with organization, drive, accountability, un-bridled passion for everything Red Sox, and a desire to have their opinions heard by fellow fans.
This is a contract role that reports to the Executive Producer of 2400Sports.
