Creative Announcer, thinks fast, informative, FUN!
Have the kind of voice people love to hear...and whether it's on an answering machine (which has gotten calls from friends who say 'I just want to hear your voice before I go out the door today' or the listeners who catch my oldies radio program, they come back for more every time.
I am a true radio personality...relevant yet not crushing on the details, light but always have something to make note of, and love making people laugh (whince, chuckle, snort... it makes me laugh as much or more than they do!)
Have done quite a bit of public speaking and presentation work as well, so if the subject needs decorum it is well within my ability.
Wordsmith as well, which helps with creating good, crisp, sensible and even funny copy. Make up my own characters when necessary or in that uber-creative state (happens quite a bit).
