FUN is getting ready for another season and as we look to expand content we are looking for new hosts to help with our Region Recap shows.
Almost all of our prior year hosts are returning but some have moved and we are expanding and need your help to make it happen!
Our Region Recap shows premiered last year and focus on providing event recap to competitions that took place and their designated geographical regions.
We’ve received great feedback on improving these shows and can’t wait to help share the new format with the FRC community. We are also splitting our Southeast region into two to provide more granular coverage. You can see the coverage map based on Week 1-7 competitions here
Here’s some information on the type of person we are looking for:
Enthusiastic personality and a drive to get the job done no matter what.
Confidence in front of a camera with a strong vocal presence.
Relatable to the audience and willing to interact with members of the FUN chat room (both friends and trolls alike).
Knowledge of the FRC game and knowledge of teams and events in their region (most likely neighboring states).
Ability to work with others including other hosts, guests, and a producer.
Puts the show first above other commitments.
Ability to broadcast out of a quiet space without being disturbed, have a webcam (other than a laptop webcam), microphone (other than a laptop microphone), headphones, and a wired internet connection with at least 3mbps upload.
18+ years of age.
Not currently in high school.
Time commitment for this host position will require a weekly show during the competition season and time spent ahead of time (usually in a tight time window) for research/preparation. Most hosts spend about 1-4 hours a week preparing for the show plus the 25 minutes of on air time.
Doing what we do is a ton of fun and the benefits of being recognized by and appreciated by the FRC community is incredible. With that comes a lot of hard work and willingness to go the distance no matter what. We rely on everyone to follow through and hold those accountable when they do not.
If you are interested please fill out the following form by Tuesday November 6th 11:59pm Eastern(updated). We will follow up with you after this date.
FUN will provide an apparel piece in recognition and as a small token of appreciation. First year hosts will most likely receive a polo with other options available with multiple years of service.
Based on the map link above here are our needs for the 2019 season. While I will list preferences this does not mean that we are not open to anyone who would be a great fit. Also each area we may take 1-2 alternates.
US Northeast (pink): Need 1 host. Preference to New England District
FIRST in Michigan (brown): Full, might consider 1 alternate.
US Southeast (red): Need 2 hosts due to region split. Preference to the CHS and NC areas.

We are also looking for contributors that would be willing to donate their time to help out with either short form content (interviews and footage at events) or just simply providing insight to their regions so we have provide better content. We will proudly show your name on work and it can be a great portfolio piece to use in the future. Please contact me personally if you would have interest contributing media this upcoming season.
