Are you the next David Letterman? Waffle Shop Guest Host Challenge


As you probably know I am a huge fan of the Waffle Shop – what started as a class poject for some student on community interaction has become a year round project.  Each weekend The Waffle Shop, located at the corner of Highlnad and Baum in East Liberty opens its doors for a live talk show and they serve waffles.

On Saturday, August 1 – they are holding another Guest Host Challenge – you can compete agianst others to win the title of Talk Show Host.  Here are the details – if you want to compete – sign up by July 29.

WAFFLE SHOP is an unusual late-night waffle emporium in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood that celebrates the lives and stories of its customers through the production of a weekly talk show on the premises.

We are looking for energetic and engaging Pittsburghers to compete live on SATURDAY, AUGUST 1 at 10 PM for a chance to be a special host of an upcoming episode of the Waffle Shop Talk Show. Contestants will be asked to interview a variety of guests and will be judged on their hospitality, riveting interview skills, and flexibility with
unexpected obstacles (and visitors).

The top three winners will host upcoming shows this summer and fall.

Please contact us at: by July 29th and tell us briefly what would make you a great host for our show. Include your name and contact information.
