Last year, XFINITY turned to SB Nation to announce their contest for the ultimate social media job. Well, they are back at it this year, again giving you the chance to win a dream sports media job. They will give you access to major sporting events around the country, while paying you a salary, giving you a Philadelphia apartment, and 12 months of free XFINITY cable, phone, and internet.
We've had a great time over the past year working with Austin Schindel, who was last year's winner. He's been every where this year. He's taken time to talk to us here on the Phinsider. He's had an amazing year, but now it's time for someone from the Phinsider to take his job.
So, how can you do it?
You're asked to create a short video and statement detailing why they should be the next person to take over the @XFINITYSports handle. Eight Semi-finalists will be catapulted to the next round based on their outstanding submissions, but the final two Semi-finalist spots will be awarded to two of ten Wild Card contestants. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for one of the ten Wild Cards, to send to the next round. Once selected, the skills of the 10 Semi-finalists will be put to the test in a full scale social media evaluation at XFINITY Live! in Philadelphia. The top scoring five contestants will then receive the opportunity to visit an XFINITY partner team to act as a reporter and share their experience with their fans. Ultimately from the five Finalists, the new voice of XFINTIY Sports will be selected.
