Cal Koat

rich and smooth, not too old, not too young

Voice Description

I have a resonant baritone that's reminiscent of early FM without the lethargy. I voice many movie promos and can easily slide from light and humorous to dark and forboding. Overall, my on-air sound has been described as very sexy, expecially by ethnic listeners for some reason. I'm the total package with 30 years of commercial production experience, I have the ears and the pipes to deliver the goods, straight and simple or with gusto. I MC many, many performances because I give great intro.
