FARGO, N.D. -

You might have seen his billboard looking for a job. You saw his story earlier this week on KVRR.


Now, Ben's search has a happy ending.
 
 
The man who moved to Fargo without a job finally has one.


Ben Merritt is the new co-host of the Morning Splash on Froggy 99.9 radio.


Ben doesn't have any professional radio experience, but the folks at Froggy liked his voice and his personality.


Ben says his unique job search could not have gone better.


He came to talk to them on Thursday, and to his surprise, after two days of on-air auditions, they gave him the job.

Ben admits, "I didn't expect it to be a job interview. I just expected it to be an interview about the billboard and how this was kind of becoming a thing."
 
He first show starts Monday at 5:30 a.m.


As for the famed billboard, Ben says he terminated the lease, and Froggy is now renting one with Ben's picture saying "You're Hired".
