Bernie Wagenblast Voiceovers

Doing radio traffic reports in NYC is how I first started in the transportation industry. Over the years I’ve combined my transportation and communication skills to find my unique niche in the business. In addition to this and other transportation newsletters I edit, one way I combine both skill sets is by doing transportation-related voiceover work. This includes a variety of projects including, video narration (Illinois Tollway, VDOT) public address announcements (NYC subway, PATCO, AirTrain at JFK and Newark airports), TV commercials (NJ Transit, WABC), telephone systems (Port Authority of NY & NJ, PATH), online course narrations (University of Maryland) and podcast hosting (ITE). I can give you a professional announcer’s voice but, perhaps more importantly, I bring to my reads knowledge of the transportation industry that adds authority to the recording with a minimal amount of direction. Please click this link to see and hear samples of my work. You’ll find my rates are reasonable and my turnaround time is quick. To hear a sample of my phone recordings, dial the Port Authority’s main number at 212-435-7000. Please drop me a note for more information.
