Hi, I'm James and I'd like to welcome you to my profile on voices.com. I've worked exclusively in the Central Arkansas (United States) market my entire broadcasting career and have finally decided to branch out, thanks to a suggestion from a friend also on voices.com. Because of my length of experience while restricting myself to just one market until now, I consider my voice to have that "I've heard it somewhere before" quality while at the same time sounding a bit refreshing and new to any regional, national, or even international market. In the future, I plan on adding additional demos featuring more of my offbeat (goofy) voices for those needing more of a unique sounding audio.
