A story from History and the History Channel… Men as experts

Once again prof blogger Historiann posts a great critique.  The History Channel sent out letters looking for a prof to host a History Channel show.  Who are they looking for for this expert/host position?

“Male, mid 30s – mid 40’s, blue collar intelligent with the right mix of humor and gravitas. Needs to be quick on his feet and have the ability to give game instructions, interact with contestants, and ladle out historical fact. Rugged but approachable and knowledgeable.”
