I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I started in radio and moved into voice overs while gradually phasing out my on air gig. My first big break was after moving to Los Angeles in the early 80's and voicing the trailers for early teen movies such as Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Porkys and others. The huge break happened 20 years ago this August when a little upstart network called, Fox hired me as their promo voice. Since then, I've primarily worked in promo for Fox, CBS, NBC and ABC. I voice syndication packages for network shows going into reruns and first run syndication as well. I'm proud to be a part of some pretty cool Live TV events like the Emmys and Grammys and I work as an in-show announcer for programs like Deal or No Deal, Extreme Makeover Home Edition and so on. I also am the image voice for local radio and TV stations around the country. All of that takes up about an hour a day. So, pretty much I'm bored the rest of the day and that's why Rick said why don't you start "Ask Joe."

Helene Weinberg here- (voice impressionist from VOICE 2008, VOICE 2010)
I just caught your video on VU and wish you success on America's Next Voice.
If you and Randy are still searching for candidates and feel that a female Impressionist would be a good part of the mix, I would love to be considered.
All the best, Joe!
Hi Joe, Just wanted say that I'm so happy that you are going to help Joe Williams with hi career. What a great story of the humanity that has been shown. May you and your family have the best year ever!
Good luck and God bless,
Thanks for the add! Have a great weekend!
From chatting with other fantastic industry folks afterward I booked my first big network promo! Thing is, it was also my first promo EVER.
BUT - I'd seen that wonderful video of you doing a promo session, so I basically focused on channelling you. Trying to get it all precisely in time, with the SFX holes all rhythmically perfect - I had a sense of what it might be like to do at a pro level thanks to you. I think I even borrowed your hand gestures.
So if you happen to watch ABC Family today (Monday), and you catch a cooking-themed promo for AFV, that's me doing my best Joe.
