I love doing voiceover and often receive compliments on my “newsreader voice.” While I was on placement at Global North East, that voice came in handy!
Drivetime presenter Tom Campbell was looking for a newsreader to narrate a comedy skit he’d written about the Tees Transporter Bridge. It wasn’t really appropriate for the newsroom employees to take part, but guess what? I’m the girl on work experience, no one knows who I am, so I have no credibility to lose! And speaking into microphones is one of my favourite things to do, so it was a win-win situation.
I recorded Tom’s script in one take and it went out on air during the Heart North East drivetime show on 9 March 2016. It went down so well that the Capital North East breakfast show played it the next morning! I guess I can now say I’m voice talent for Global Radio…
