Bernie Wagenblast Voice Services

Need a professional voice for a transportation application? I have experience with everything from a simple phone greeting to a complex train announcement system. Unlike many other voice-over performers, I bring years of transportation experience and knowledge to each project. Understanding the ins and outs of transportation systems translates to a recording that’s more authentic. My resume includes clients such as the Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority, the City of Laredo, TransCore and the New Jersey Department of Transportation. You can learn more and hear samples of my work at Let me know how I can help your organization sound its best.
