World Chess Events Limited, which holds the broadcast rights to FIDE’s World Chess Championship cycle (including the Grand Prix series and Candidates Tournament), has issued an open call for a Chess commentator. World Chess is looking for someone to anchor live video coverage of the highest level Chess tournaments, as well as “to play a key role in shaping a new way for chess to be broadcast.”
We are looking to create a chess media superstar… He or she must have a deep understanding of the game. But we are also looking for someone who can engage with a wider audience who are perhaps not chess experts.
To be considered for the position (which includes a “competitive salary” and significant world travel), applicants will need to submit a resume and 5 minute test video.
