Testimonials

“Diane has a great voice, it has the right mixture of authority and passion. She was very easy to work with a very professional attitude. I would highly reccomend Diane.”

Michael Sullivan, Sullivan Productions

“She is amazing and our clients lover her work. Very versatile and professional. You should hire her for your next TV or radio spot!!!”

Bill Criswell, Criswell & Associates

“In a world of mediocrity and incompetence, Diane Burket is one of those business resources that most of us only dream about. She's smart, competent, professional, and hugely talented. I would recommend her without reservation.”

Dave Bolick Communications

“I've worked with Diane many times. She is a consummate VO professional. She brings tremendous skill, energy and a totally relaxed "vibe" to the studio. Her ability to deliver nuanced performances is extraordinary. She can invariably "intuit" the exact voice a client is looking for, even if the client isn't quite able to articulate it! I'd hire her again in a New York minute.”

Jon Herbst, Herbst Studios
