From the Publisher

In the early days of broadcast media, the booming "announcer" voice typified the limited style of voice-over work. In today's world of ubiquitous radio and television ads, automated telephone systems, games, and Web sites, a much broader range of recorded voices has emerged. In spite of the raised profile of the voice-over industry, learning to make money by speaking into a microphone has remained difficult for actors, broadcasters, and countless others who have been told "you have a good voice." That is about to change. Harlan Hogan, one of the nation's top voice-over talents, shares his secrets to success in VO: Tales and Techniques of a Voice-Over Actor.
