LEE COUNTY — The guy who turned heads with his emotional plea to Barack Obama during a town hall meeting in Fort Myers landed a gig with the Fort Myers Miracle.
Julio Osegueda, 19, will will be the radio color announcer during the Miracle’s home opener on Friday, April 10 against the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
Osegueda has worked at a Cape Coral McDonald’s for four years. When Obama called on him to ask the final question Tuesday, he praised the Lord for Obama’s visit and asked the president about his plans to help increase benefits for people like him.
Osequeda, who is studying communications at at Edison State College, wants to be a broadcaster or disc jockey.
Osegueda has basic news reporting classes and said working at McDonald’s is helping him become a better broadcaster.
“People come thru the drive-thru and when I take their order and talk to them a bit and they say, ‘Wow, you’ve got a great voice and you should be a broadcaster.’ So that’s what I want to do,” Osegueda said in a release put out by the Miracle. “Man this is so cool. I can’t believe this day and wow what a great opportunity.”
Osegueda said he does’t know much about sports, but his family members are huge New York Yankee fans.
“I’ll be ready,” said an excited Osegueda.
