"Dream Job: El Reportero"

Vista L.A. went behind the scenes of reality show "Dream Job: El Reportero." It's a show by ESPN Deportes where they scout the country looking for the network's next sports reporter. Judges like sports commentator David Faitelson and sports expert Jorge Ramos, who also serves as the show host, are part of the selection process. After months of searching it came down to five finalists: Andres Arias, Daniela Rodríguez, Joseph Van Wyk, Daniel Sanchez and Rafael Luna. Mauricio Pedroza, the winner of "Dream Job: El Reporter" in 2006, also helped the reality show find their next star sportscaster.
