Marissa Monticolo

Well-Spoken, Upbeat, Confident, Young, Sassy

Voice Description

I have the ability to change and mold my voice to meet the specific needs of whatever I may be working on at the time. This, due in part to the fact that I am an anal Virgo and have a penchant for mimicking other people (I can do a mean Jersey shore "watch the tram car, please"). I can be serious and strong, sexy and sassy, warm and friendly, upbeat and energetic, humorous, light, etc. I believe I offer a wide range of vocal stylings.

My Voice Experience

Experience? Everyday is an experience when you work in The City of Brotherly Love promoting a group of radio stations!

After taking two years off from college to "find myself" and subsequently learning that I'm apparently here, I returned to school in fall of 2005 and in May of 2007, finally earned a degree in communication with an emphasis on radio and television. I have worked extensively on my own and in class to polish and mold my voice, allowing me to ditch the southern New Jersey accent at will.

While in college, I acted as the lead news anchor and field reporter for The College of New Jersey's television program The Journal where I had the opportunity to write my own stories and present them on camera. The show aired on campus as well as in and around Ewing, NJ.

Additionally, I am a former intern for Philadelphia based television network, CN8 (Comcast) where I worked in production on their program Comcast Newsmakers and was able to practice and refine my public speaking skills by utilizing their studio facilities.

In July of 2006, I completed an internship in promotions with Philadelphia radio station 95.7 WBEN FM. While there, I worked with a producer on various sweepers for both station events and national spots which have aired across the Delaware Valley (southern New Jersey/Delaware/Philadelphia area).

At the conclusion of my internship, I was hired to promote Greater Media Philadelphia radio stations WMMR, WMGK, WPEN and WBEN and to date, I have had the pleasure of helping to coordinate a multitude of successful events as well as continuing to record a great deal of voiceovers (including jingles) with seasoned producers Tony Harris (102.9 WMGK and Kevin Gunn (93.3 WMMR). Also, I had the pleasure of doing a stint as co-host for a week in July 2007 with Dave Cruise on the 95.7 BEN FM Morning Show.

Most recently, I had the opportunity to do imaging for Philadelphia's Classic Rock 102.9 WMGK jock Andre Gardner for his syndicated show Breakfast With The Beatles. My voice can be heard not only in Philadelphia but San Jose, Phoenix and Baltimore!

In November 2008 along with colleagues Tony Harris (Production, 102.9 WMGK) and Blair Johnson (Account Manager/Voiceover Artist, 102.9 WMGK) I was nominated for a Philadelphia Air Award for my work on a commercial.

My Training

I have been enrolled in various college courses including public speaking as well as writing and announcing for broadcasting in which I fine tuned my skills as both a writer and a voice over artist.

My internship with 95.7 WBEN FM and subsequently, the voiceovers I have been fortunate to record and work on in conjunction with well respected producers and jocks have allowed me to practice the craft of voice overs while building a portfolio.

In the past, I have acted and performed in several musicals including 42nd Street, Crazy For You!, Annie Get Your Gun and Guys and Dolls in which I sang, danced and had speaking roles.

I am very polished in front of an audience due to my work in various ensembles such as community chorus, womens ensemble, madrigals, and select choir. I am the recipient of the 2001 National High School Choral Award and continue to sing whenever I get the chance.
