Ken Wilkinson

British, quiet, smooth, educated

Voice Description

My style of presentation is relaxed and friendly. I like to develop a natural and personal contact with a listening audience. I am at my best when talking to listeners directly, either at live broadcasts or during interviews and phone-ins.
I have a rich and mellow voice, which has an individual characteristic that even I cannot describe. Often people comment on my tonal quality and I am easily recognised by the sound of my voice ‘off mic’.
I am intelligent and capable of functioning using my own initiative. Off air I speak quietly. One of my main programming strengths is an ability to think on my feet and interact with the public, an ability honed I suspect from years of experience with live audiences.
