KHL TV is looking for commentators and analysts to cover KHL games for broadcast to the USA and Canada. Candidates should have a high level of fluency in spoken English, as well as a good knowledge of hockey terminology and an understanding of the game. It will be possible to work from Russia or North America. If you think you can do it, send your CV to email@example.com.
Important note: Due to certain technical requirements we can only accept applications from Moscow or Canada.
Hopefully you guys will make KHL hockey understandable to the North American audiences. I could watch you guys on TV and be better than the Russian versions of Jack Edwards we are currently getting. Not that I understand anything in Russian anyway.
USA is ditched again)
Maybe KHL-TV could be offered on American cable/satellite TV, even though no American hockey fan could apply.

If Filatov really can speak a good English then he may have a chance to work in the Moscow studio.
If it was only for a couple of New York games, then American hockey fans could apply.
That said, maybe KHL-TV doesn't trust American hockey fans for play-by-play very much. If you watched NBCSN (or Versus back in the day) and one of TSN/CBC/RDS you'd realize what I mean.
Maybe The KHL can get Don Cherry, we all know how much he loves Russia!
There's good and bad broadcasters in the US and Canada. Canada's coverage of hockey is better than the US but there are some good US hockey broadcasters. Possibly the KHL thinks Canadian broadcasters will make the league more reputable in North America.
I really hope that they don't hire some plug recycled commentator/analyst from some hockey league here in Canada. I mean they really should hire someone who truly knows the KHL and Russian hockey in general. I can assure you that this is a rarity. I mean even at the SSS the announcers who are supposed to know a thing or two about hockey were trying to convince viewers that the MHL was the equivalent to the AHL in North America If the announcers they hire are going to be that retarded, then i will continue to watch the Russian language streams.
