IT WAS 1969 and I was in kindergarten.

Sister Donna Marie, our class's saintly teacher, took us on a trip to WEBR-AM in Buffalo, NY.

The minute I walked into that radio station control room...BOOM!

Everything changed for me.


I knew instantly my life would always include a microphone.

My 5-year-old self didn't realize it but my broadcasting obsession was genetic. My Dad was State High School Oratory Champion and my Mom had long wanted to work in broadcasting at a time when women didn’t do that.

Thus began my quest!

My junior year, I secured my high school's first-ever radio station internship.

As a college freshman, I got my first radio job at a 50,000-watt radio station in Dayton, OH, ultimately hosting/producing it's #1 rated Saturday night radio show. I was also promoted to Commercial Production Manager, voicing many radio station's spots and promos because advertisers liked my commercial production work.

Because of my humor and improvisational skills, then as now, I'm a popular choice for live event announcing.

All that broadcasting and voiceover work evolved into audio'connell Voiceover Talent, where I voice commercials, narrations and broadcast promos for many clients like IBM, Kraft Foods, Crest Toothpaste, PBS and Duracell Batteries.

Awhile back, we O'Connells packed our Conestoga wagons, hitched up the horses and ventured from our longtime home in Buffalo, NY to our new home: Raleigh, NC.

Turns out, state troopers frown upon horse-drawn wagons on their highways. Who knew?

Clients have been extremely pleased with the broadcast quality sound at my state-of-the-art, Source-Connect-equipped North Carolina studio, about twenty minutes from Research Triangle Park (RTP).

There, I professionally record almost any project requiring the human voice, while helping scores of media producers with great national, regional and local brands.

How can I help you?

I'd be glad to share my decades of professional voiceover experience to enhance your media production.

My thought as I think about this picture is "I think men grow hair faster as they get older".

I don't recall whiskers coming in this fast in the past, but I've never kept a whisker-growing diary like this before.

But beyond the facial hair is OVER $200.00 donated to my efforts! You people are insane and in the BEST possible…


…because i don’t have enough to do already

Truth is this was a simple idea that I should have caught on to long ago but last week is when inspiration hit. My hope now is to give you an idea that you can customize to hopefully benefit your business.

I graduated from the University of Dayton in 1986 which didn’t seem like a long time ago at the time.

Looking at… Continue

Unfortunately for my pal Dave Courvoisier, he answered the phone last week.

I happened to be on the other end because I had an idea which involved his baby – National Voiceover Month. It struck me that with all the things that went on in the voice over world in September, maybe a video should be created to at least attempt to capture the sense of the… Continue

September is National Voice Over Month

Not to be too dramatic about it, but it’s about damn time.

Almost every group, organization and/or species has a week or month named in honor of them. Often times it sounds like a joke when you hear some of their names and so too may the impression here now for some, but it’s not.

My friend and fellow Voice Over Talent Dave Courvoisier kinda mentioned the idea in… Continue
