NEW YORK (AP) — This year if you call Butterball’s Turkey Talk Line for some turkey advice, you might get a male voice on the line.

For the first time, Butterball is enlisting the help of men as well as women for its Turkey Talk cooking-advice line during the holidays. And the turkey seller is seeking the first male talk-line spokesman this year as well.

The talk line has long offered advice to people cooking turkeys over the holiday season.

Butterball will offer an application for men to apply on its Facebook page.

Most operators have a background in food or nutrition and have culinary degrees or are dietitians, food stylists or scientists.
