Back in the day, everyone knew what a radio voice sounded like: deep, rich, resonant– like the voice of actor Richard Burton or God Himself.


With few exceptions, we just didn’t do voice overs in the early years of advertising, and people of color are still struggling for equity –although diversity in casting is improving.

The sound of voice over today is nothing like it used to be.

You’ll still hear celebrities of course, but if you pay attention, the vast majority of voices on commercials sound like regular folk-well trained to deliver the message without sounding unnatural or announcer-like.

So if success in today’s voice over is no longer about your voice, what is it about? I’ll explore that topic and more in this week’s Inside Voice Over video training blog, recorded at a surprise location!
