My voice has a deep, gravelly quality for narrations, but my range allows me to lift it for younger and female voices. My reporter/anchor/announcer background comes through in my commercials, but I am able to scale it back for conversational reads, as well. I specialize in several different accents for fiction book narration, both for adults and children.
English (North American), English, Spanish (Latin American)
Australian, British, Caribbean, Caribbean (Dominican), French, German, Indian (India), Irish, Israeli, Italian, Italian American, Jewish, Mexican, North American, Russian, Scottish (Standard Scottish English), South African, US New England (Boston, Providence), US New York (New Jersey, Bronx, Brooklyn), US South (Deep South, Dixie, Delta), US Upper Midwest (Fargo, Minnesota), US Western, West African, Yiddish
Middle Aged, Senior
Audiobooks, Business, Cartoons, Documentaries, Educational, Internet, Movie Trailers, Podcasting, Radio, Telephone, Television, Videogames
I have worked for 12 years as an on-air journalist, the past 7 of them in the city of Boston. I have produced hundreds of narrations through the years, both in English and in Spanish. I have recorded countless promotional reads as a news reporter and sports anchor. Live reporting and anchoring have helped me hone my skills as an ad-libber but also in laying down recorded tracks for narration of news and sports pieces. I have also recorded periodicals for the visually impaired.

I record tracks in my audio studio at my home, so the turnaround time is very quick. I can usually provide custom demos in just a couple of hours. I also specialize in copywriting, copyediting, and translation from English to Spanish and vice versa.
As the voice of Take Five, a fiction compilation of short stories, Josh brought the works to life, one in particular, the voice of Sgt. Franklin, the brusque U.S. Army sergeant in, "Private Gagliardi Meets The Army." And there were others as well, some that brought tears to my eyes, such as “The Little Statue.”Anthony Cacchillo, author: Take Five
Not only that, but Josh was a pleasure to work with, always accommodating and adapting to all changes graciously.
Josh has a voice, drive, and personality to be reckoned with, and I know that they will lead him to a very successful career.
Josh Brogadir did an outstanding job narrating my book "Univision: America's Largest Spanish-Language Television Network - How it beat ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX".Ruben Soto, author: Univision
He is very dramatic and captures your attention from the start. He has a terrific voice and he has exactly what I was looking for in the narrator of my book. His tone is wonderful and brings the information more to life.
One of the main reasons why I selected Josh to narrate my book was because of his knowledge of Spanish and because of his television journalism experience. There are many names in Spanish in the book and he did an excellent job pronouncing them.
He is also a great person to work with and he delivered the completed project way before the due date.
I highly recommend Josh as a book narrator and I will certainly use his services again.
Josh Brogadir is an amazing and talented person. He brought my book to a new level. His voice makes my characters come to life. He is outstanding.L.A Maldonado, author: The Ripper & The Darkest Hour
