Bernie Wagenblast Voice Services

You probably know me best through the TCN but what you might not realize is that I had my start in broadcasting and have continued to use my voice for a number of projects. Among those for whom I've provided my voice are the Port Authority of NY & NJ, TransCore, the City of Laredo, and the New York State Thruway. Each day thousands hear my announcements on AirTrain at Newark and JFK airports.

If your company or agency should need a friendly, professional voice for a phone system, Web site, video, PowerPoint presentation or just about anything else, please let me know. In most cases distance isn't an issue since recordings can be sent via e-mail or on a CD. To learn more, please visit or drop me a note at
