Get to know Diann from FreshFM, Ryan from FM 96, and other on location talent from London, Canada
This afternoon, I happened to cross paths with a few on location radio personalities in our fair city of London, Ontario Canada.
What tipped me off that they were from the world of radio? Well, their promotional vehicles, of course!
Diann's cruiser was a Mercedes Benz SMART Car (nice to see that FreshFM is being sustainable). Diann will be cruising around London and the surrounding area throughout the summer in the SMART car, broadcasting live from events.
Ryan was driving the Subway Subs London Kia Sportage. Ryan too will be broadcasting on location throughout the lazy, hazy (and humid) days of summer at various hot spots in London and area.
There was another station there, but the personality was in their car doing a voice-over when I caught up with Ryan and Diann. Maybe next time!
Of course, I took the opportunity to ask if they recorded voice-overs.
Upon affirmative replies, I gave them each a business card and promptly shared information about our future name change, Voices.com which was received with a mixture of awe and excitement.
Our conversations were brief due to on location voice-overs being recorded live from their cruisers, but it was a pleasure to meet radio personalities in person and be able to share what we do with them.
At that point, I realized that they hadn't heard of us before I introduced myself. What's kind of interesting is that most people in broadcast don't know that online marketplaces and services such as ours exist!
A few months ago, I met Todd from A-Channel in London, and he didn't know about us, or about the concept for that matter, either.
"We've got to do something about this!" I thought. Well, you know me, always thinking up something to do :) I'll hit on that in a future post.
Back to the program:
Are you an on location reporter for a radio station?
