Wanted: Host for children's television

As part of its new, five-year initiative called PBS KIDS, the public television network is launching a nationwide search for someone to host its new preschool programming, which begins this fall. PBS describes the right person as someone "who embodies a warm, creative and charismatic approach to life-long learning and child engagement. And don't be too creepy." OK. I added that last line myself. The host will do more than just introduce the next show. He or she will act out language and musical segments and inspire the kids to think about what they're watching. PBS is considering current television talents and people in early childhood education for the job. You can find more information about the job here.
