Q-13 Sports Director Aaron Levine

Aaron Levine is a somewhat familiar face on Puget Sound TVs for a couple of reasons.  First and foremost, his station Q-13 is the local Fox affiliate, since the network carries the NFC, the lion's share of Seahawk football will be on that station.  Seahawks after all are in the NFC.  In addition, he hosts Seahawks Saturday Night, and Seahawks Gameday, as well as Q It Up Sports, a Sunday night look at whats happening in the Sports world.
However, before he got the Seattle gig, Levine flirted with fame as a contestant on the reality show, Dream Job.  It was a show where the winner was awarded a one year contract as an ESPN anchor.  Levine, who had taken a quarter off from Stanford so he could fly back and forth from San Francisco to New York, finished second.  He is now happy that he did not get the ESPN job, figuring his lack of experience would have stunted his growth in the field.   He spent the next couple of years working at a station in Bakersfield before getting the job at Q-13 in 2007 at the age of 25.
Levine is now the sports director at Q-13.  A native of Calabasas, CA, his favorite hobby is golf.
