The History Channel is looking for a Co-Host

The History Channel requested that we share the following announcement:

We are looking for a male co-host, ages 35-55 for a premium cable show that focuses on American History, Mysteries and Secrets. Our host should be a “believable believer,” someone who can challenge traditional scientific and historical methods. This person should bring a fresh perspective to the audience and the team that will allow the series to take unexpected turns i.e. conversations with numerologists, channelers etc. On the other hand, one of the important qualities that he should possess is the ability to not be simply a believer, but also “speak with mathematical and scientific authority” and be able to converse with other members of the team on their own terms. We are looking for someone who can convince our more traditional hosts to rethink their position. He should also be flexible enough to be convinced that he is wrong at times. Finally the host should be smart, playful, a strong  communicator and have a good sense of humor.

Having one of the following is a must:

Advanced Degree

Military Background

Government agency background

Investigator

Published Author, online or other

Archeology background

No actors please we are looking for real people.

If you or anyone you know fits this description and may be interested, please have them contact me as soon as possible. Also, please feel free to post this on your website or pass this message along to anyone you feel may be appropriate. Thank you and I hope to hear from you shortly.

In your response, be sure to include a recent photograph and a short paragraph explaining why you are interested and right for the show.
