Will you be watching the royal wedding?
This question is being asked more and more as the date draws nigh. Many of the people I have spoken with will either be watching live or intend to catch the highlights afterward on television or via the Internet.
That being said, a number of people will be listening, even working behind the scenes to bring the royal wedding to the people.

British Royal Wedding Promoted By US Voiceover Royalty
There’s a lot of pomp and circumstance that comes with a royal event, especially a royal wedding for the future king and queen of England.
I’ve been keeping my ear to the ground and discovered that many people within the voice over industry are contributing to the lead up to the wedding including promos on network television and more.
To cite just one example, Joan Baker (pictured at right), a ‘royal’ voice among the industry elite, is the voice of a number of royal wedding promos that are running on HLN.
More work of this kind will follow in the days after the wedding as the media gives a recap on the wedding and all it entails.
