Face of Fox Toledo Finalist!

I just got the call! I am one of eleven finalists for Leah’s job as the Face of Fox Toledo! CLICK HERE to view my competition. I will have a second interview Friday morning, in which I’ll do in studio green screen work.

As it turns out, this “contest” was never an audience vote. I had thought my success last year was thanks to my promotional skills and all the people who sent in emails on my behalf. I was told today that last year they asked for “viewer feedback” and absolutely everyone misinterpreted that as meaning a “vote.” Though it’s presented as a contest, the TV station views it more as an interview process, because the winner becomes a legitimate employee.

At first I was disappointed, because I had felt certain my PR skills could get me into the Top Three or Four again this year. But it’s actually an encouraging revelation, showing that I did well last year on my own merit and based on the skills the job requires. I still have a hunch that my supporters’ emails helped last year, because they took it from a Top Sixteen to Top Four without an interview like I’ll be having Friday.

So while I guess I won’t need your emails which I so thankful for last year, I’d still greatly appreciate your thoughts this year!


  • Best of Luck!

    If by chance this doesn't work out, are you looking for jobs in your current area or out-of-state?
