My Voice Experience

I have a degree in radio, television and film. I love to write copy and voice what I write or what is already written.

Currently, I work at Los Angeles based 885FM (AAA format) and 885FM HD2 (contemporary jazz) broadcasting throughout southern California.

I've produced/voiced many underwriting spots for the station and several more outside of it. I have finally found my passion for what I LOVE to do and I plan on making the best of this opportunity for a long time. Should you find my voice ideal for your particular needs, rest assured you will get my focused effort and commitment to excellence on each and every project! My Best, Don James

My Training

Cal State LA - Radio, Television, and Film (1995)- specializing in writing, production, and talent.
Saddleback College - on going (Radio Broadcasting and Production)

88.5FM and 88.5FM HD2 - Air Talent and production team.

My Studio Equipment

State of the art recording and on air equipment using the following software: Enco, VT, Adobe Audition and Sound Forge; Adobe Audition my preferred software of use.

Additional Skills

I've been in LA radio for 10 years. Currently I host two weekly shows and voice station promos. Additionally, I've been in sales and marketing most my entire life; successfully selling unique products and services. I am also an ardent commercial "observer" and rarely change the channel when they appear so I can determine what kind of an impression they'll make on me the consumer. After all, when selling or marketing a product or service one must understand what will HOOK the audience. I feel confident in my abilities to make that connection regardless of platform. Selling AND believing in the product/service one represents without sounding "salesy" is important not only in the VO industry but also in regular day to day interaction. I can definitely see the improvement in my day to day sales results since my involvement in the radio and voice acting industries. I look forward to working with YOU and effectively promoting YOUR product or service!
