Job Description

Barbara McNamara Casting is looking for a host for a new show "This Day in History" for the History Channel.

Here's a rundown of what we're looking for in a host:
We're looking for "smart but not stuffy" - we want to see a combination of charismatic journalists, historians as well as self-taught experts who will speak with confidence and personality.

If this is something you might be interested in, I could send you a script and you can have someone video tape you or you can come to an audition here in NYC.

The format of the show is only 1 minute per script, every evening "This Day in History", so 365 days. Our host will only work a week or so as all 365 days will be taped in a studio here in NYC towards the end of February. Pay is $2500 per day. Must have a neutral American accent.


To Apply
