Throughout July and August, budding music television presenters will be given the chance to audition live on air as Alt TV seeks a replacement host to fill the void left by Lucy Hunt and her signature ‘A-rotate’ programme Lucy for Lunch.
Alt TV will open its doors for one hour at midday each Saturday and Sunday for Pitch a Show Idle – a programme whereby Thane Kirby and Bomber will take hopefuls live to air with their show pitches.
Bomber says: “For legal reasons, notice how we’ve spelt it idle and not idol”.
Alt TV audiences will have the opportunity to vote with their thumbs (txt) and a final decision will be made based on viewer and Alt TV management’s opinions.
Live open auditions start at 12 noon on Saturday 21 July and run every Saturday and Sunday until August 12. The winner will be announced by Craig and Rebecca on The Residents at 7pm on Monday 13 August.
Alt TV studios are located at 171 K’rd next to Verona Cafe, come in and show us your shtick.
