Pittsburgh Penguins Job Opportunity

Have you dreamed about being a public address announcer at the Civic Arena?* Well, here is your opportunity. According to the position description, "the Pittsburgh Penguins have created a new position for a second public address announcer. The person in this position will work alongside the Penguins' current PA announcer, in an auxiliary role, during all home games at Mellon Arena. This is NOT a full-time position. This position is responsible for the in-arena sound associated with Penguins home games in the Mellon Arena."

Some of the duties include:

- Establish signature calls and traditions for Penguins fans.
May I suggest "Buy Sean a drink and get his kitten Ziggy one too," or "Call Arnold Hill from Swissvale."

- Announce all Penguins pre-season, regular season and playoff home games.
You would get paid for this!

- Utilize voice inflection and enthusiasm to increase fan spirit.
Let’s get ready to rumble has already been taken, but use Michael Buffer as a guide.

More information about this position is available on the NHL Hockey Jobs website.

By the way, if you learned about this position from here and ended up getting the job, please feel free to send a few tickets my way as a thank you.

* I know the venue has been called Mellon Arena for years now, but it will always be the Civic Arena to me.
