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.

Minnesota Governor: Vikings’ Peterson should be suspended

Fresh
FILE - In this Sept. 7, 2014, file photo, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson warms up for an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis. The Vikings benched Peterson for Sunday's game after his attorney said he had been indicted by a Texas grand jury on a charge of child abuse. Attorney Rusty Hardin says the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank his son. He says Peterson has cooperated with authorities and "used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son." Hardin says Peterson regrets the incident but never intended to harm the boy.

Gov. Mark Dayton called Peterson's actions "a public embarrassment" to the Vikings and the state of Minnesota. Vikings Sponsorship suspended & Petersen's court date moved.
