University High graduate Zachariah Selwyn did not make the final round yesterday of ESPN’s “Dream Job” competition.

The native Tucsonan, now living in Los Angeles, was cut early, along with Maggie Haskins of Providence, R.I., as he tried to win a one-year contract as an anchor on “SportsCenter.”

Tony Kornheiser of ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” and Al Jaffe, vice president for talent negotiation and production recruitment for the network, each voted against Selwyn and Haskins after yesterday’s first round.

Kit Hoover of ESPN’s “Cold Pizza” voted against Haskins and Aaron Levine of Palo Alto, Calif.

“Zach, you impressed me more each week,” Jaffe said during the broadcast. “You stayed true to yourself, and I think that’s terrific.

“You’re very clever, very talented, but I just don’t see you as a ‘SportsCenter’ anchor. I see you more as a feature reporter.”

Mike Hall of Columbia, Mo., defeated Levine in the finals in a vote only of the viewers.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
