When you're driving around town with the radio on, have you ever heard one of your colleagues either on air or as the voice artist on commercials or station imaging or station identification?
Recently, I happened to hear two people that I knew and am curious to learn of if this is something you keep your ears out for too!

Don't you love turning the dial in cities or places far from home to find a familiar voice? That's what happened to us while we were driving north on the I75 this spring through Ohio.
The voice we heard was that of the one and only, Julie Williams, giving a news report via KLOVE. When the voice came on the station, years of hearing and knowing Julie, along with her sign-off, confirmed that it was her. You may know Julie from her podcast contributions on Voice Over Experts and her voiceover workshops.
Similarly, I was in the car on the way home from doing groceries and happened to hear the voice of my friend and fellow blogger Bob Souer on The Hour of Decision, a radio program featuring the messages of Billy Graham and Franklin Graham. The program has been aired since 1950 and is heard each week on over 1,200 radio outlets.
Maybe you've even heard one of the voiceover jobs you auditioned for! I'm sure that would be interesting (and hopefully not too distracting while driving around!). Perhaps you've even pulled over when you heard such a voiceover and took notes about the talent who was awarded the job, observing their voice type, interpretation and how they colored their words.
Whenever I encounter an advertisement on the radio, I often wonder if the voiceover was procured at Voices.com. You never know where you might encounter a project that was completed through the voice over marketplace.
If you've booked any radio gigs through Voices.com, I'd love to hear about the job and anything you can share about the market it aired in, who the target audience was and the station(s) the ad was played on.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
