voice and writing talent for comedy news podcast


About the project and the company

Seeking voice talent  and comedic writers to don both hats for the following positions: news cohost( anchor), weather, sports and in the field(phone) for podcast news satire. 60/30: real/faux.  Not fake news, just made up to be presented as real which does not limit the nature nor the breadth of the show or  its individual comedy bits.

Cornish News Network and Cornish Machinations is totally fictional, I use Filmora X  video editor and other software apps for editing, footage, sfx and such for video shorts, usually one minute to two minutes in length often times repeating like a GIF, but with music bed and sfx.  There is never any voice work from me: it is all written on the screen addressing the audience.

It is has been a learning process but the videos regardless of content are beginning to look more and more professional.  I store on Vimeo and disseminate on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. I send at least three copies of each creation to various folk at CNN.

So the gig is to bring Cornish News Network to life in a podcast.

Voice or broadcast experience including some knowledge of audio production is basic to this your pay is a big fat goose egg endeavor. A warped sense of humor is mandatory and knowledge of current trending news events and social events. your ability to write comedy and to then apply in the real world and make it funny and engaging, well, you sure won’t get the gig if you are not funny on the air and can’t write ha ha he he ho ho script. The fake stuff must be funny and sound like the real deal( your writing skills, on air delivery and the ability to not laugh too much.)  The carrot dangling on the stick for listenership is Cornish News Network sounds like a real news broadcast (podcast) despite 30% being satire.
