'Post' Sponsors America's Next Great Pundit Contest
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Listen up, armchair commentators. Here's your chance to shout back at the talking heads by becoming one. The Washington Post wants you to be America's next great pundit. There will be 10 finalists competing to become one of the paper's paid columnists for 13 weeks. Contestants would have to have the skills of modern punditry. That would including being able to write on deadline, answer readers' questions and of course, bloviate on the page. It's MORNING EDITION.
