Hosting events and live announcing requires a unique type of voice actor
Not every professional voice actor feels comfortable doing the read at a live event. The fact is, with live announcing, the performance needs to be on point the first time. There is no opportunity for a redo. Because of this, live announcement voice over requires bold, strong, confident voice over from a highly experienced voice actor. Even in the case of pre-recorded announcements that will air at a live event, the voice over still needs to be compelling, clear, and authoritative.
Many types of events use live announcement voice over. From award ceremonies, to major network broadcasts, to sports events, the sound of an announcer’s voice sets the stage and guides the audience through the event experience. Their voice needs to accomplish several goals, including getting the listeners excited, introducing the speakers or upcoming segments, and giving other important information. To do this right, the voice actor needs to know how to energize a crowd and deliver each message in a way that keeps the audience engaged.
