A 36-year-old radio station sales manager from Hugo, Minnesota will be the new voice for the Aflac duck, replacing comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who was fired after his tasteless jokes about the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

There were over 12,000 people that auditioned for the position. Dan McKeague was entry number 5,184. He'll earn a low six-figure annual salary for a week or two of working in voicing the Aflac duck.
