Speculation is mounting that Donald Trump intends to create a new TV network should he lose the presidential election, and Fox News reports that a new casting call is adding fuel to the rumors.
“What’s being billed as an ‘up-and-coming conservative media network currently in development’ is now scouring for hosts, reporters and right-leaning, well-spoken panelists, according to a brand new casting notice obtained Wednesday evening by Fox News,” the story reports.
“The notice goes on to say the on-air talent the network wants ‘must be knowledgeable about conservative viewpoints, current events and the presidential election,’ adding applicants must also ‘look upscale and intelligent,’ and should be ‘outspoken and energetic,'” Fox News reports.
Auditions are reportedly set to take place Nov. 7, the day before the election, at an undisclosed site in New York City. The report notes that the Trump campaign has already set up, through its Facebook live feed, the infrastructure needed to begin streaming programming via the Internet.
For his part, Trump has denied he plans to start a TV network, telling The Washington Post recently: “I want to win the presidency and I want to make America great again. It’s very simple. I have no interest in a media company.”
