Michael Morgan has a wealth of vast experience in voice-over performance, writing, advertising and creative direction. Michael's career in radio began as a teenager and took him across the country from Montreal to Vancouver where at CKLG his voice was recognized for honours in the legendary ‘People’s Commercials’ which won the prestigious national RadioTelevision News Director’s Association award and the coveted international Edward R. Murrow award for Our Home and Native Land.
Michael founded Canada's largest broadcast syndication company where his voice was heard nationally on shows that he both wrote and produced ‘In Session’ with David Foster, ‘Discovery’ with Dr. David Suzuki and ‘The One Minute Manager’ which he co-hosted with Dr. Ken Blanchard author of the New York Times best selling business book The One Minute Manager. Michael enjoyed the spotlight himself as national host on Canadian Top 40, a weekly music countdown and Celebrity Sports Report a weekly investigative sports journal, the Nissan Night before Christmas a seasonal special and quarterly brodcast reports for RBC on Money and Education.
Michael's eclectic interests brought him to Beijing to write and voice a PBS television special on China's medicine-less hospitals and today he sits on the Board of Directors of Superchefs of the Universe with medical experts from Harvard and Yale fighting childhood obesity using multi-media animated characters. Michael's signature voice has been chosen by national brands like airlines (CPAir) Swiss watches (Rolex Oyster) Procter and Gamble for over three decades because like a great wine, it speaks with sincerity, seductively convinces, inspires and gently caresses each word on the script off the page and into the consciousness of the listener.

Michael is an expert strategic communicator, brand developer, writer, public speaker, media trainer, motivator, marketer and teacher, executive producer, voice over artist and morning drive talk show host (partnered with Dr. Laura in the afternoon drive slot).

We chose Michael to be the voice of the Spirit Catcher Train as part of the Klahowya Village attraction in Stanley Park. In the post Olympic 2010 celebrations hundreds of thousands of visitors rode the train and were taken back in time to enjoy Aboriginal culture and heritage led by Michael's narrative. The feedback from passengers was overwhelmingly positive and we thank Michael for playing his part to perfection.Aboriginal Tourism British Columbia
