DETROIT (WWJ) – No wise quacks. Aflac begins its nationwide search on Wednesday for the successor to Gilbert Gottfried as the voice of the Aflac Duck — no prior experience necessary.

Gottfried was fired after he posted insensitive remarks about the Japanese earthquake and tsunami on Twitter.

Detroiters who can’t make one of the live auditions are still in luck, because Aflac is also accepting submissions online.

“We will be taking online submissions through April 1st. We will be holding live auditions on April 4th and 5th. The goal is hopefully making a decision somewhat towards the end of April,” Kane said.
