    The Northside team announced Monday it's looking for a public address announcer, "the voice of the Chicago Cubs while in Wrigley Field," to replace announcer Paul Friedman. And fans are eligible to apply.

    Go online to submit your application with a 2-minute video of you reading three scripts provided in the job posting.

    The team wants someone with "strong vocal talent, excellent enunciation skills" and trong knowledge of baseball.
