Transportation Voiceover Specialist

There are lots of folks who do voiceover work, but only one that specializes in TRANSPORTATION voice work. Every day, well over a million people hear me in the NYC subways, on the AirTrain at JFK and Newark airports and on PATCO. I’ve narrated videos for companies such as Sensys Networks, Econolite and DBi Services. My radio and TV commercials for NJ Transit have aired in New York and Philadelphia and every few seconds I’m answering the phone for PATH and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. You might even catch me narrating online courses for CITE at the University of Maryland or for Rutgers. I even narrated a book for Random House! f you need a voice for just about anything, please let me know. My rates are reasonable, my turnaround quick and I’m sure you’ll be pleased with my work. Help support the TCN! Please contact me at bernie@transportationradio.com. Hear samples here.
