An Inside Look at What It Takes to be the LA Kings In-Arena Host

The Kings are looking for a new in-arena host and Carrlyn Bathe explains what it takes to hold this position

by Carrlyn Bathe @CarrlynBathe /

Very few jobs require you to ask a packed ice arena full of 18,000+ people to get on their feet and make noise all before the beat drops in "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits. 

This job does. 

When you are the LA Kings' in-arena host, this is a common scenario for a tied game, nearing the end of the third period.

At a normal job, you may find yourself winding down as your day comes to an end. At this job, you have to be ready to turn it to up to 11 until the very last puck drop. The end of the shift might be when you have to bring the most energy.
