G4 Casting Calls for "The Ultimate Gamer Girl"

Via Killer Betties, GotCast.Com and its partner, the G4 network, are actively searching for a new female host and correspondent for some of G4's upcoming programming. From GotCast's casting page:
We're looking for young females that live and breathe the world of video games. We'd like them to be able to play games as well as talk about the gaming industry. On-camera experience isn't necessary, but it's definitely a bonus!
In their application requirements, they specifically request a video showcasing both "personality" and "knowledge of video games," two things that in my cynical nature I wasn't expecting. As worded, the hunt for "the ultimate Gamer Girl" made me raise my eyebrows a little but, as far as I can see, G4 is genuinely interested in getting some authentic female talent for their network. And for that, it's awesome that they're looking to recruit young women for an industry that so often ignores us.

The casting ends on February 29 at midnight, so, to all who are interested, definitely take advantage of this opportunity to get the voices of women gamers heard!
