Picking the right VO talent is always tough and absolutely subjective to each one of us, but crucial for your on-air branding and station imaging. The rigtht Voice can be key to success and great brand building. Voice Auditions can cause big discussions, but they are always fun to do for me. After years in the business I still love listening to the stars and the upcoming talents interpreting the Call Letters of our clients and then dicsuss back and forth which one sounds best for that spcific project or station and match the crucial criterias of every imaging guy (or at least you should think about those criterias before finally hiring a VO guy). Every one has his own rank here….mine is:

– availability and communcitaion

– audio quality

– turn around time

– flexibility

and at least budget!
