Steve Oldfield

Friendly Announcer, Expressive, Emotive, Newscaste

Voice Description

While I have more than 20 years of professional experience working as a national feature/entertainment reporter, my voice isn't your typical announcer or news reader. It typically has lots of energy and enthusiasm.
I'm told I have a friendly voice that can express emotion. I'm not a super-deep detached narrator or James Earl Jones but I can do that style if that's what you need. As an actor, I have done character voices as well, including some "old man" voices.
