The VO Story Of The Year (So Far!)
Well, it’s early in 2011, but already a voice over-related story has taken the nation by storm. By now, you’ve probably heard about Ted Williams, the homeless man in Ohio with the golden voice who was featured on a local news broadcast and has become inundated with voice over jobs. It’s a truly great and heartwarming story, and we wish Mr. Williams all the best of luck.
