New Zealand’s newest TV channel is searching for aspiring television talent with star potential.
The Shopping Channel – New Zealand’s first, dedicated 24-hour selling channel - will be holding a casting call for presenters keen to be a part of this prestigious prime-time hosting role.
The new, locally-produced channel is launching on Sky Channel 18 and Freeview Channel 18 on 1 October 2012 and is set to bring the internationally successful home shopping format to New Zealand.
“This is an unique retail experience in New Zealand – bringing live television and on-line shopping together – by kiwis for kiwis, supporting local brands coupled with international product – a destination for everyone,” says Alistair Duff, CEO of The Shopping Channel.
Duff says presenters will need to have the skills and personality to deliver on the crucial task of bringing merchandise to life through their demonstrations, providing ideas and giving shoppers much more than they bargained for.
If you think you’ve got what it takes, we’re looking for outgoing, open communicators who are comfortable with being in the spotlight. You’ll need to love shopping, have authority and be a natural salesperson.
“Being a presenter on The Shopping Channel will undoubtedly launch someone’s career. Our hosts play a crucial role in the process of informing and entertaining viewers.”
Overseas, hosts can have TV careers that span decades and it’s expected the new channel will also make these new, fresh faces famous.
Auditions will begin at 9am on Saturday 30 June at Ogilvy building, 22 Stanley Street, Parnell.
