Pacific Beach resident Cippy Teran is among the top 50 candidates vying to be Petco Park’s next public-address announcer.

Teran, formerly a radio talent with Jammn Z90, is a lead supervisor at Cymer in San Diego, a leader in developing light sources used by chipmakers.

The group of finalists was selected from nearly 800 in-person auditions and online submissions.

“The diversity of our Top 50 is a reflection of the great diversity of San Diego,” said Padres chief marketing officer Wayne Partello. “We’re taking this search very seriously because this individual will be the voice of Petco Park.”

Partello said that after reviewing the auditions multiple times, “We decided to extend the timeline to ensure that each candidate is thoroughly evaluated.”

There will be a fan vote online and via social media in early April to help narrow down the field from 30 to the Top 10. Those finalists will announce additional parts of a Padres game between April 11 and April 20 before the pool is narrowed to the Top 3.

As part of their final tryouts, each of the three will announce a full game.

Petco Park’s next public-address announcer will be named during the series against the San Francisco Giants, April 18 to 20.
