    Craigslist ad to replace Miller and Deace

    Morning Sportsradio Hosts

    EDIT: This was tweeted by the WRNL folks so I'm assuming they posted it on Craigslist too.

    I believe the last line in all caps is the most important information in that ad.

    KXNO is hiring for two new sports radio hosts to replace the popular duo of Steve Deace and Jon Miller. You will be stepping into the #1 time slot in Des Moines. Hours will be 6-8 AM Weekdays

    Please specify which position you would like to be considered for on your application.

    Hawkeye Homer:

    - Tall and lanky, preferably awkward.
    - Must talk ad nauseum about family. If one does not exist, make one up.
    - Answer own questions at least five times per hour, while interrupting whomever you're interviewing.
    - Must claim Big 10 conference as the greatest thing since the invention of the forward pass. despite Ohio State's repeated flops in title games and the fact the SEC has won 6 times the amount of BCS titles, and the "about to fold" Big 12 has won twice as many.
    - Hide Hawkeye homerism for long periods of time, but occasionally have an explosion of Hawkeye love that rivals a BP oil spill in size.
    - Either have a bad sense of humor, or none at all. Must laugh at anything (even if vulgar or completely unfunny) about rival sports personalities, while maintaining a "high brow humor only" attitude involving sketches about one's self.

    Cyclone "Insider":

    - Short, pudgy, and very angry (especially about the direction America is heading). Resemblance to Spanky from the Little Rascals a plus.
    - Must make extremely long-winded and uncomfortable commercials about how much you love your Kia Sorrento.
    - Pretend to be Cyclone insider while spending most of your time on the radio raving about a major national program.
    - Claim that your political views will be limited to a separate show on our sister station, but allows judgmental side to come out fairly often.
    - Must possess ungodly amount of sports knowledge, so much so that listeners can only assume that you have spent a lifetime turning college football in a modified game of dungeons and dragons.

    Both applicants must demonstrate superb chemistry in studio. KNXO will select the three most qualified applicants for each position and all six will be required to have a Justin Bieber-themed sleepover. The two that most personify the word "bromance" will be chosen for the positions.

    NO FAAAAACKIN NEW ENGLANDERS NEED APPLY

    If I had to take a shot in the dark... I'd say KXNO. No idea why...

    Re: Craigslist ad to replace Miller and Deace

    When I first read the title of the thread, I thought these guys were being replaced by a Craigslist ad. Which I presumed would just be repeating over and over for the duration of the show...

    Re: Craigslist ad to replace Miller and Deace

    Man that was spot on, especially the weird *** KIA commercials. Knowing how poorly built Kia's are I always figured Deace's family called his car the Batmobile because it lost a wheel letting the joker get away.

    Wide Right Natty Lite can neither confirm nor deny responsibility for this Craig'slist ad.

    However, we agree with it's sentiment.

    Saw there was a thread about this on HN as well. There was quite a hidden gem in there... Now you can hate Matt Perrault through facebook too!
