Birmingham has at least two chances to use their well-known voting prowess to help catapult two individuals into the cable television spotlight in the coming weeks.
Last night Martie Duncan became one of the final four for the current season of The Next Food Network Star. You can vote up to 10 times a day by phone or online via the show’s website (with a Facebook account). As pointed out in today’s Birmingham News article by Chanda Temple, you’ve got until 4 p.m. CT tomorrow (Tuesday, July 16).
The folks at 106 & Park on BET are asking viewers to vote for who they want to see as the next hosts of the long-running show via The Search. We’ve found one person currently campaigning online in Birmingham to be considered for one of the slots, Wondrea Gilmore (known on Twitter as @Dree_GotU). Her YouTube video’s up and her requests on Twitter for help have gotten a nice response so far. Of course, if you’re a DirecTV subscriber, watching every day to see if it comes on TV is just a little harder than it used to be. Just saying…
If you know of any other metro Birmingham area people considering submitting for The Search, let us know in the comments section.
