We are looking for new presenters to join the Alith-Cast team!
For those of you who are not yet familiar, Alith-Cast is our guild's official video podcast. It's basically a talk show, presented by members of the Alith community, focused on both the game as well as the Free Company itself.
Alith-Cast will be pre-recorded and uploaded onto our YouTube channel for viewers to watch at their leisure. Each episode runs for anything between 1 - 3 hours and features Final Fantasy XIV News & Discussion, Free Company News, Competitions, possibly Special Guests + Interviews, as well as plenty of laughs & jokes! The show is produced & directed by the FC leader Belazarus and presented by lead presenter / show host Sylente, alongside co-presenters Ambrosia and D'ohn.
Alith-Cast has always been a fantastic way for us to share all the exciting news & gossip from Final Fantasy XIV, as well as a great way for us to communicate with both our community AND the outside world and show our viewers what life in Alith is like. What makes Alith-Cast special, is the fact that the show is presented & put together by a mixture of guild management AND members of our community.
This is why we are looking for YOU to join the team alongside main presenter Sylente, old hand D’ohn and newcomer Ambrosia! All that’s required is for you not to be camera shy and to enjoy a “good old chat” about FFXIV.
We recommend having a look at our recent episodes of the show, to give you a flavour / taste of what the show is all about:
