Testimonials

Ben Blankenship has been the on-air imaging voice for Omaha radio station 1290 KOIL for some time now. My experience with Ben has exceeded my expectations. Not only is the quality of his work outstanding, but he is the most accommodating voice talent I have used. Whatever we needed, whenever we needed it, Ben made me feel as if I was his only client.

Neil Nilkin, Operations Manager
NRG Media, Omaha, NE

NRG Media Omaha, NE/News Talk 1290 KOIL

Ben is one of the best professionals we've had the pleasure of working with. No primadonna VO guy here! He just gets it done, and does it right the first time. Our station became better instantly when we added him as our station imaging voice.

Jay Deacon, PD WISE/ESPN Asheville, NC

Ben is consistent, professional, and always delivers just the right tone for our News Promos. He is very responsive. We know when we need a voice over turned around quickly we can count on Ben.

Ed Oliver, MD WMBF-TV, Myrtle Beach, SC

It's hard to define Ben's style, he's that versatile. Ben has given us deep levels of talent, a sound that's made KTXX number 1 for sports in Austin, TX. Well done Ben and thank you.

Evan Chancey, Creative Services KTXX-FM ESPN Austin, TX

I've known Ben as a voice over talent for nearly 20 years. His one-of-a-kind tough and gritty voice is reason enough to attach him to one of our projects, but it's his humility and hard work that allows us to book him again and again. To call him a go-to announcer would be an understatement.

Corey Dissin, Media Manager, Mentor, Motivator

Ben is one of the freshest and strongest voices in a massive sea of talent. Ben stands out and cuts through to grab your attention and doesn't let go. I found him very easy to work with, he gives you fast turnaround and he's just an overall great human being! You can't go wrong with Ben!

Tim Jones, Marketing & Social Media Specialist

Ben has a rich voice full of texture and meaning. He's also professional in his dealings, delivering the highest caliber work. I recommend Ben highly for whatever project you want to give a voice.

Christopher Webster, Producer at The Mix Group

Ben is always available when needed for work or auditions. He is friendly, professional, and always makes my life easier as far as work is concerned. Ben is also a super talented promo and trailer voice!

Micaela Hicks, Agent at VOX Talent LA

Ben has met our needs several times for voice over, narration and even serves as the voice for our music on hold system. Ben takes the ball and runs with it, making it a pleasure to work with him. All of his work is timely, delivered to our specifications and at very favorable rates. On top of that, he's just fun to talk to.

Jeff Chastain, Account Executive, LHC Group

I have had the great pleasure to work with Ben on a number of different projects. His professionalism and expertise were invaluable to me and the project in achieving the best results possible. I couldn't have asked for a better person to provide suggestions and be (excuse the pun) a excellent 'sounding board' for creative, intuitive solutions on the finest way to reach an audience.

Brad Hyde, Director of Business Development, Woodridge Behavioral Care

Ben has been the voice of Y107 since 2007 and I would not want anyone else. His creativity and performance has been top notch and I highly recommend him, as long as it's not in one of my markets!! I have used him for other stations I programmed as well. Ben is the best!!

JR Runyon, Director of Programming Crain Media

Ben has proven to be a very versatile and an incredibly entertaining voice over person. Every time I have used Ben in a piece of production, he nails the read and has given me exactly what I have needed time and again. A true pro in the voice-over world!

Joe Meinecke, Producer Milwaukee Radio Group (Saga Communications)

Ben Blankenship is the steal of the century. Although he consistently produces first class voice over for regional and national clients, he always makes the time to work his local customers. It's a huge asset to my company to have such a talent in my arsenal. His delivery is always spot-on with little or no direction, his turn-around time is mind-blowing, and the value of his service is unmatched. He's a natural for car dealerships, but when he needs to, he can be as smooth as a lullaby. I would recommend Ben to anyone.

Kenny Jackson, Owner of Anthem Pictures

We’ve counted on Ben for over 16 years now and he has delivered everytime!
