April 1, 2017 Jessica Lee Leave a Comment

This year’s Auction to benefit Wisconsin Public Television could feature you at the microphone!

WPT is holding auditions for volunteer auctioneers for our annual Auction, which will broadcast live on television May 31 through June 4. We’re looking for both adult and youth auctioneers!

Auditions will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the WPT studios on Tuesday, April 4 and Wednesday, April 5. To register for an auctioneer training and audition session, please complete the online form. 

At Auction, the auctioneer’s job is to introduce items and encourage high bids by reading copy on-air and announcing winning bids. During the auditions, we will provide you with examples of auctioneers in action and give you the opportunity to practice reading scripts with help from our friendly, expert coaches. No advance preparation is required – just bring your enthusiasm for public broadcasting and your best speaking voice!
 

Wisconsin Public Television studios are located at 821 University Avenue in Vilas Hall, on the corner of Park Street, on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

If auctioneering isn’t your forte, we can still use your help to make this year’s Auction a success. Visit our volunteer page for more information.  And thank you!
