Bill Vargus

smooth, deep voice, professional, sports expert

Voice Description

I can be very smooth, and deep, as befits my many years of FM radio announcing, or more high-energy, like when I was a TV sports anchor. I can get pretty crazy with it, if need be. Or I can be laid-back, and sexy. Most of my acting roles have been in the role of a professional, so I can do very straightforward narrations as well. I can do urban or ebonics, too.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

African-American (using either ebonics or the King's English with an urban feel), Southern dialects, Boston accent, or straight middle American. I specialize in impersonations of boxers--both Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson are on my demo tape. Throw in Hulk Hogan and Howard Cosell, and we can really "Get ready to rumble." (Yeah, I can do Michael Buffer, too.)

My Voice Experience

Currently, as the voice of Philadelphia on a TV tourism commercial, I give off an air of complete confidence that stops just short of arrogance.
I have about 30 years of experience in radio and television. In radio, I was often a laid-back news anchor in FM radio, but also metamorphed into a high-energy screamer when I did the pre-game show for the Philadelphia 76ers.
As a TV sports anchor for 25 years, I was again very high energy. But I also did human-interest type packages that called for a more subdued tone, with subtle tones of caring and compassion.

My Training

Studied voiceover with Charles Micheal, the Winning Voice, in New York City.
Also have taken classes in voice work at HB Studios in NYC.
Have had one-on-one counseling with Edge Studio consultants.
