Gillette Drafted: The Search for Canada’s Next Sportscaster debuts its second season for The Score channel in September, and joining Joseph Planta is Austin Spencer, a Vancouverite contestant whose previous experience with the WWE might make him The Score’s latest sportscaster.

Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

In Vancouver, I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

This fall on The Score, the second season of Gillette Drafted: The Search for Canada’s Next Sportscaster airs. The deadline for applications has passed, and now ten finalists are going to start filming episodes of the reality series, whose winner will be awarded a one-year contract with The Score, contributing to the channel and their website.

I’m joined now by one of the ten finalists, and someone from the Vancouver-area. He was once a member of the UBC football team, and he’s run for mayor, and he’s trained and appeared with the WWE—World Wrestling Entertainment. He appeared on the WWE’s highly rated programs, RAW and Smackdown as ‘The Mayor Austin Spencer.’ Will that training in professional wrestling help him get Drafted? Check out www.drafted.ca for more on the program, and of course www.thescore.com. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Austin Spencer; Good morning, Mr. Spencer.
