Casting notice goes out for new 'up-and-coming' conservative news network

Donald Trump denies he is interested in launching a new conservative news venture, but somebody sure is.

What's being billed as an "up-and-coming conservative media network currently in development" is now scouring for hosts, reporters and right-leaning, well-spoken panelists, according to a brand new casting notice obtained Wednesday evening by Fox News.

The notice goes on to say the on-air talent the network wants "must be knowledgeable about conservative viewpoints, current events and the presidential election," adding applicants must also "look upscale and intelligent," and should be "outspoken and energetic."

Auditions are being held at an undisclosed New York City studio on Nov. 7, the eve of Election Day.

While the casting call doesn't identify any specific employer, it does suggest initial programming will be streamed on the internet, infrastructure the Trump campaign has already set up through its Facebook live feed where aides have been broadcasting events and counter news programming.

Fox News reached out to the Trump campaign for comment, but none was given as of late Wednesday.

In June, Vanity Fair first reported that Trump was considering creating his own media business. In September, The Financial Times reported that Trump's son in law Jared Kushner had started exploring the idea of launching a video-based media company after the election to capitalize on the Trump political movement.

Trump himself shot down the idea, telling the Washington Post last month, "I want to win the presidency and I want to make America great again. It's very simple. I have no interest in a media company."
