Benztown Voiceover Group has announced that veteran announcer Randy Thomas has joined its roster of voiceover talent. Thomas who made history as the first woman to announce the Academy Awards, the Emmy Awards, the SAG Awards, the Tony Awards and the AFI Awards, has for the past nine years been heard daily as the voice of CBS Television Distribution’s “Entertainment Tonight,” one of the most watched entertainment programs.
In addition to Thomas’s voice work she’s logged more than 20 years of experience as a radio personality in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Miami, and is the co-author of the book, “Voice For Hire: Launch and Maintain a Lucrative Career in Voice-Overs.”
Benztown Justin Case said; “Randy Thomas is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind voice and talent. She brings a phenomenal skill set in branded voiceover, and is very effective across a range of formats. Benztown customers will benefit from Randy’s deep expertise and smooth delivery. It’s fantastic to be able to offer this caliber of a voiceover professional to stations of all formats and market sizes.”
Thomas added, “I have been hearing a buzz about Benztown for a while. I looked closer and feel the barter business model works in today’s broadcast business environment. I’m very excited to be working with them and to be out in front with the radio stations I serve. Before I established my career in voiceover, I was an on-air personality. My heart has always been in radio. I understand the needs and demands of the stations that I work for and together, we create solid branding.”
