Wolves hosting tryouts for new in-arena announcer

Think you've got the pipes to dazzle the crowd at Timberwolves games?

If you've got the voice to entertain the masses in style then you might want to consider signing up for a tryout to become the new public address announcer for the Timberwolves. 

The Wolves are holding open auditions for the job Thursday, Aug. 17 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. You can reserve a time slot between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. by emailing entertainment@Timberwolves.com. 

Rod Johnson was the in-arena voice of the Timberwolves for 21 years before stepping down last month. 

We have no idea what the in-arena announcer gets paid.
