The job for in-stadium announcer for Padres games opened up in San Diego. Seizing the shot at being ultra local in a fun way, John and Tammy, KSON, San Diego decided John would try out for it and bring listeners along for the ride. John made it through the first few rounds, bringing tons of stories and audio to the show for listeners to get a peek behind the curtain. Just before John’s final audition, we had him be the PA announcer at area retail stores so he could get comfortable with the process. Retail establishments like Lowe’s came out of the woodwork to have John come by to tell customers that azaleas were on special. John didn’t get the Padres PA job, but we created lots of fun, unique local content in the process.
