About

Cal has a resonant baritone that reminds some people of the early days of FM radio, but upbeat and warm. Cal voices many movie promos and can easily slide from amusing to deep and dramatic. Overall, his on-air sound has been described as very attractive and friendly, especially by ethnic listeners for some reason. He's the total package with 34 years of commercial production experience, Cal has the ears and the pipes to deliver the goods, straight and simple or with gusto. He also emcees many, many performances because he gives great intro.

Voice Over Testimonials

Cal Koat would be a great asset to any radio stations or production houses that require voice talent service. We are very lucky to have Cal on our team and he has been voicing and producing English language radio commercials, promos, station IDs as well as program intros for us as well as our sister stations across Canada for many years.

Cal is disciplined, dependable and dedicated, willing to put in 120% of his effort to make his productions perfect. His creativity can turn a rather bland advertising copy into an exciting and convincing sales pitch, and his skills in the use of voice and tone will give life to any script and commercial writings.
