Service Overview

Voice Over

As a 30 year radio host, I'm adept at a friendly, conversational delivery. I've also been a professional sports public address announcer and ring announcer for boxing and mma, so I can also produce a booming style.
I have multiple narration credits on Audible, all non-fiction, but the styles vary from clinical to sympathetic to humorous.
I can do a minimal amount of accents and some impersonations, but if you have something specific you'd like, I'm always willing to try.

Voice Over Testimonials

I have been a professional ring announcer for the past decade & have worked with some of the most prestigious promoters in the business, including of Top Rank Inc., Golden Boy Promotions, Main Events, among others. Based on my 21 years of experience in the field, I would highly recommend Kevin Kline to be your next master of ceremonies or voice artist. He has a commanding voice & a strong presence in the ring that would lend an air of credibility to any event. Along with his vast broadcasting experience & professionalism, he is the ideal candidate to fill your position.

Lupe Contreras, Top Rank Inc.

I am the promoter for Big Dawg Promotions. Kevin Kline was our ring announcer for our pro boxing event (History in the Making) as well as our pro hybrid event pro boxing & mma (Best of both worlds). Mr. Kline performed an outstanding job. He is a professional whose vocal talents seemingly come natural, especially when announcing in combative sports. Mr. Kline is a dependable, hard working individual.

Richard Vasquez Jr., Big Dawg Promotions

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself, Lester Bedford and note my recommendation for Kevin Kline as a ring announcer.

My business, SPOT, Inc., manages and markets major sporting events, primarily world championship boxing events. Over the past 30 years, we have represented promoters and television networks on over 120 world championship boxing events.

For many of those events, it has been my responsibility to hire and work directly with the ring announcer. For most of those world championship events, I have been fortunate to work with ring announcing legends Michael Buffer and Jimmy Lennon, Jr., considered to be the two best in the business. A few years back, Michael Buffer was the ring announcer for an HBO Boxing event in Houston, but I was in need of finding someone to assist Michael by announcing the preliminary bouts. While in Houston, I met Kevin. In discussing with him various promotional ideas through the radio station he worked for, I recognized the tone and clearness in his voice. I actually mentioned that he would make a great ring announcer. He offered his services if ever needed. Shortly after that, I picked up the phone and called him and asked him to fill in for Buffer (on prelim bouts) for the HBO event in Houston.

I have to say, it was a little roll of the dice for me, but I was confident-- with some direction, Kevin would do well. I was wrong-- he was terrific, just outstanding in every aspect. Not only did he have an incredibly clear/distinct voice and delivery, he was an amazingly quick study. It really was as if he had been ring announcing for many years. And to note, Michael Buffer was at ringside a bout before he was to go on for the television broadcast and was highly complimentary of Kevin. He was specifically impressed at the strength of his clean delivery and was further impressed with the fact that Kevin didn't try to over-do it with screaming, as many do.

So please pass this on to whomever may be interested in hiring Kevin. They have my strong (highest) recommendation that Kevin Kline will be a huge asset as the face and voice of their organization. He represents professionalism, enthusiasm and is a dream to work with. I promise you, they will not find anyone in this business that will do a better job.
