Job Description

Note from Voices.com - Client has selected and paid for talent via the SurePay system. Thank you. June 19 - client added female to his original listing (posted on the 18th) so gender has been changed to include both male and female talent. This script is intended to be a NPR / BBC morning news sound alike. My "read" specs would be to deliver a la one of the morning edition reporters- like Corey Flintoff/Carl Kassell or David Edelstein. For a Corey Flintoff narrated video view: http://youtube.com/watch?v=tfVxoXvUO_Y Male or Female voice 40-55.


“Department of Justice insiders today indicated that Infineon Oil has been linked with a company in Nigeria that may have inappropriately used funds to influence Nigerian officials. In a voluntary disclosure to the Department of Justice (leaked to NPR news late this afternoon), Infineon Oil has acknowledged working with Petroleum Resource Consultants, a Nigerian-based company that specializes in obtaining documentation necessary for foreign companies to establish business entities in Nigeria. PRC works with many of the largest oil companies in the world, including British Petroleum, Chevron and Exxon Mobile, and has close ties with the Nigerian Government. Infineon Oil’s voluntary disclosure to the Department of Justice implies that PRC may have taken part in illegally bribing Nigerian Government officials in return for favorable decisions in relation to Infineon Oil (and its subsidiaries’) efforts to discover and exploit oil and gas reserves in Nigeria. While Infineon Oil’s involvement is unclear at this time, the alleged conduct may be contrary to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a U.S. Federal law that, in part, addresses the bribery of foreign officials. Neither Infineon Oil nor PRC responded to requests for comments prior to going to air. Department of Justice officials had no comments at this time. John/or Joanne Whitehead for NPR News”
