KSTV Casting Call Showcases the Talent

The final round of the KSTV Casting Call is in LOUISVILLE ON MAY 12 at SAM SWOPE HONDA WORLD from 8-11 am. It is your chance to become a Kentucky sports reporter and cover the Cats for the next year as one of my co-hosts on KSTV. We have already done casting calls in Florence and Lexington and have a number of semifinalists ready to move on to the next round of competition. But first we have to look at the Louisville group and get our final group of semi-finalists. To get a taste of the talent, here are two men from the Florence round, each of whom had interesting stories during their attempts to make the show:

First up was this UK student who went Nerlens Noel to his hair in preparation for the big event:

And then there was Comic Kevin Jones, a comedian who once was on Jerry Springer as a part of a Love Triangle, who took his shot at UK reporting glory:

You could be next, so make sure and come to Louisville for the tryout. You must be there sometime between 8-11 am, and then if you make the next round, be ready for your afternoon tv tryout. It is a lot of fun and I hope to see you there.

    Check out the awkward hand placement by Matt Jones. Do I place my hand on her? No, I go for the always awkward floating hand.

    He was right tho, UK Football is horrible and never will win. Also I would rather look at him than whoever ends up WINNING this thing.

    Poor Kevin Jones. I didn’t think there could be any one worse than what I think I would be at that. I would love to get be on there and get that football question. Matt is 100% wrong about his opinion about the football program.

    #1 & #4 you are both correct. I’ve simultaneously dropped and gained weight, it’s quite the conundrum.

    Dude sounded like he was out of breath the whole time. I guess just standing there in one spot is a major work-out for this guy.

    Wow, these folks are difficult to watch. I can only imagine how bad the ones on the cutting room floor must have been if this dude was “good.” He wasn’t awful but, he brought nothing. Rupp is fine as is? And why would anyone ever admit to being rejected by a university (much less my alma mater)?

    That said, I’ve never been impressed with Leslie or Radio Ron either so I guess it’s foolish to expect anything more.

    Dude that Bishop kid has to be the nicest kid in the world. At least he seemed like it. Who admits not getting accepted then taking that ish from Will.

    I knew Drew was a pothead but I didn’t know Matt was gay until looking at the picture.

    Flipping through the page, I realized the bearded comedian looks a lot like one of the characters from Where the Wild Things Are.
