Sprout is looking for America's Next Great Preschool Host. Could it be YOU? Now through August 31, the 24-hour preschool channel is holding Sprout's Host Hunt, a Nationwide search for a new face to join the crew on The Sunny Side Up Show - their live morning show. Interested potential hosts (could be an actor... or just a fan!) can submit a 60-second audition video with full details available here.

“Sprout’s Host Hunt is a great way for us to expand our casting process across the nation to find bright new talent to join Chica on The Sunny Side Up Show, the only daily live morning show for preschoolers. Broadening our search and sharing these videos on our YouTube network is an incredibly fun way to discover new talent and engage our audience. After all, who wouldn’t want to walk in the footsteps of TV icons like Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers?”Sandy Wax, President of Sprout

Actually... we're big fans of Chica and The Sunny Side Up Show here at Rock Father HQ... and, I sorta have some experience on television. Perhaps The Rock Father should throw his hat into the ring?
