New Orleans, Louisiana, US
I have a medium to deep very recognizable and credible voice. It can be straightforward and no-nonsense as you would expect a news/sports anchor to have. I also, however, tell long-form feature stories where the voice is more of a storyteller. I use the same voice for commercial work. I'm not the guy you want if you want a: 30 car commercial, loud and brashy, but if you want someone who for 30 years has made people believe in the words out of my mouth, then I'm your man.

I've been an on-air broadcaster for radio and television for 30 plus years. News Anchor, Sports Anchor, Feature Story Teller in Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas and most recently 28 years in New Orleans for WWL-TV.
Last year, I created my own Video Production company Hoss Communications producing and voicing feature brand stories for companies, non-profits, and schools...etc. for social media and websites. Within the last few months, I have also started doing voiceover commercial work and have several projects lined up for more voiceover work. I've done projects for just about any company imaginable, big and small including, Shell Oil and Gas, The American Heart Association, The Archdiocese of New Orleans, The New Orleans Saints, The YMCA, Plush Appeal, Giving Hope NOLA (Non-profit) YEP (Non-Profit), New Orleans Paddlewheelers, Law Firms, Brand Junkie, Bliss Body, Argus Mardi Gras Krewe, and truly 30-50 more in this just our first year. This would be on top of the news reporter/anchor voice I've built on for more than 3 decades of working in the industry. My goal will most likely to move up to the Premium level, but just wanted to get involved and see the process at work first.

If you want a funny character voice, that's not me, but if you want someone, easy going, believable and gifted at telling a story, then yes, continue on. My whole career is founded on making people believe what I say, my name is tied to the word credibility.
