Bernie Wagenblast Voice Services

Would you ask just anyone on your staff to design your brochures, ads or logo? Probably not. You want a pro to create a visual image to present to customers and potential clients. Why then would you take just anyone from your staff and have them be the voice those same customers hear when they call your firm? A professional voice can make a small business sound big and a big business sound personable. For a number of years I’ve provided the voice for many transportation organizations including Newark Liberty International Airport, Virginia DOT and the Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority. I’d like to do the same for you. You can read what some of my clients have said here. You can also learn more about my voice work by visiting this site.
