ABC Meta-Milks Merry Miller’s ‘Internet Sensation’

ABC News is milking their own trainwreck interviewer Merry Miller, whose botched — and roundly ridiculed — chat with Holly Hunter has been dubbed “The Interview Seen Around the World” by the network. Based on the online reaction (554,872 YouTube views, for starters) to Joel Siegel‘s former booker, ABC is soliciting potential hosts online:

The Miller interview has inspired many people to think that they can do a better job hosting one of our shows. If you’d like to give it a shot, log on to www.abcnewsnow.com (yes — that is the correct site!) and submit your audition tape for the chance to be selected as a guest host on “What’s the Buzz.”
