Del Lonnquist

A friendly, gracious neighborly persona.

Voice Description

My voice has been described as open and friendly. A voice that welcomes interaction and connection. As and entertainer opening shows for Grand Ol' Opry touring groups it was described as loud and full of fun. As a broadcast journalist it was professional and easy going. In my talk show positions it was welcoming and gracious. As a presenter of seminars it was authoritative and positive. As a narrator for the Montana Talking Book Library I take on many characters from old men to youngsters, male and female. This is a voice that communicates whatever message is presented in a professional manner.

My Voice Experience

Broadcast journalist, talk show host, entertainer, seminar presenter, narrator of books for the blind and disabled. Each of these brought it's own experience and demands. As a broadcast journalist presentation, diction, enunciation and a smooth flow was everything. As a banjo playing country comic timing made the joke or story bring a laugh. Presenting seminars on attitude and motivation demanded a combination of both styles. Porter Wagoner said, "I wish I could take you back to Nashville Del, your enthusiasm can make a show every time." Gov. Lee Dreyfuss, Wisconsin said "Del, Your enthusiasm makes a broadcast easy, let's do it again!" A client of the Montana Talking Book Library for the blind and disabled said, "You brought the book to life. Every character was special." I try and bring life and excitement to every project large or small. Paul Harvey a great broadcaster said, "every word is a gem that you have to polish with your voice." Polishing those words brings results for clients and customers. This is what I am paid to do and I will always do my best to have a perfect presentation.
