Did you know ...

Announcing involves more than just reading from a script.  It requires an intimate knowledge of the client's purpose.  Is the message meant to elicit a specific response?  Or perhaps to entice the listener to purchase a particular product or service?  Depending on the desired effect, pitch, intonation, and even timing are all important.

When you have an important message to deliver, let an experienced announcer be your voice.
