Chat Sports, based in Dallas, TX, is accepting applications for an On-Air Host & Analyst for their NFL coverage on YouTube and podcasts.

Job Type: Full-time

Pay: $42,000.00 - $55,000.00 per year

Chat Sports is a live and on-demand sports video news network built for digital platforms - with a key focus on YouTube. Our shows are watched by over 10 million sports fans per month on our 26 YouTube channels, and other platforms including our show ‘Two Minute Drill’ exclusively on Amazon Alexa.

We're building the premier interactive network for sports fans and are looking to add a full-time on-air host to be the face of two NFL team-specific shows: Dolphins Today and 1 additional show focused on an NFC team. This position will also contribute across additional company programming. Our studio is located in downtown Dallas and this role is on-location, and is not available for work-from-home or remote candidates.

On-Air Hosts at Chat Sports work with our production team to build and deliver shows for the NFL teams that we cover. You will be the face & voice of several videos per day, and be in charge of building a following with fans of the Dolphins and 1 to-be-determined NFC team.

Our broadcasting style is a mix of news reporting, opinion, entertainment, and audience engagement. We currently have 19 NFL shows: NFL Daily, and 18 team-specific shows. On a given week, each show publishes 0-2 live broadcasts on YouTube as well as 5-6 on-demand episodes, which are typically 12-15 minutes in length.

If you apply, please get to know our shows & style by watching some of our YouTube channels:

Chat Sports | Dallas Cowboys Report | Raiders Report | Chicago Bears Now | Seattle Seahawks Today | Eagles Now | 49ers Report | Dolphins Today | Chiefs Report

Before applying, some high-level details you should know:

This role will work from our Dallas, TX studio. We will consider out-of-town candidates, but are not offering relocation assistance.

Additionally, as an NFL On-Air Host at Chat Sports, you’ll have the opportunity to co-host our flagship show NFL Daily, which broadcasts live shows 2x per week.
