America’s most recognizable female voice announcer, Randy Thomas has been winning accolades and opening doors for female voice artists for nearly 15 years. With over 20 years of experience as a radio personality in Detroit, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, Randy has gone on to achieve her dreams as a voice-over artist, writer, and now producer.

She was the first woman to announce the Academy Awards, the Miss America Pageant, the Tony Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and, in 2004, became the first woman to announce the National Democratic Convention in Boston, Massachusetts. She has announced the Oscars seven times and is the first person ever to announce The Oscars, The Tonys, and The Emmys all in the same year.

Randy is currently the voice of CBS Television Distribution's “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider,” as well as the voice for Clear Channel radio stations across the country, including WASH FM Washington, DC. She is well known as the voice of Hooked on Phonics, memorably intoning the line “Call 1-800-ABC-DEFG.”

Shifting in and out of a read..

YOU KNOW YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL VOICE OVER ARTIST WHEN.. Your day begins and you are reading emails and downloading copy, ripping faxes off your fax machine, recording, editing, and turning around sessions quickly, not to mention, getting dialed up via the ISDN all day long.

Thank the Universe that you get to do what you love. But never take it for granted. Not even for a minute. Remember that every time you get an audition. Let’s face it, in voice over you love having contract work but… Continue

The Care and Feeding of Your Voice

Posted on January 12, 2009 at 9:00pm 21 Comments

In the voice over business, the voice comes first. When you have the luxury of numerous takes, a bit of mouth noise or worse, a sore throat, can take you out of the game. To that end, I would love to share with you some tips based on some of things that have helped me over the years.

Last spring I got really sick. So sick that I thought to myself that “this is why elderly people die from the flu.” I realized that this was the sickest I had been in eight years.

In my effort… Continue

"Randy Thomas! The most-wished birthday girl in the world!"

That was my impression of the E.T. read applied to your birthday. Could you tell?

If it's good enough for Don AND it's good enough for RANDY...

For a pre, right now I'm using an Avalon VT737SP. It's a nice box. Definitely interested in the Vox Box, but it would have to come later.

Thanks, Randy. I too use a U-87 primarily as well as a 416. I have an opportunity to trade a Soundelux E47 (which I haven't had much luck with) for a Manley. It would cost me about a grand, but it seems it would give me a rich response as compared to the E47, which is just too heavy.
