J. Scott McElroy

Friendly, sincere, real, authetic, Christian

Voice Description

Scott is the voiceover host of the ANIMAL PLANET TV series, "Wildlife Journal", which ran 7am EST weekday mornings from 2004-2007.
He is a voiceover artist who finds the essence of each piece of copy and adds his unique sound to it. He specializes in the friendly, approachable read, and excels a the natural "regular guy" sound, but easily goes to deep and authoritative on the US Air Force website and Dell computers tradeshow projects. He'll also range from to hip on the Madza Speed 6 podcast and HSBC debt cancellation tutorial, to young and fun on the Animal Planet TV series "Wildlife Journal" and the Don't Mess With Texas "Litter Force" website, to wildly animated playing multiple characters on computer games like Robot Arena: Design and Destroy and LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces.
