In association with the 2010 Motor City Radio Reunion, voiceover icon Ms. Randy Thomas will conduct a four-hour workshop to assist broadcasters of all ages on how to better prepare and market themselves!

This special workshop will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (248-348-5000) in Novi, MI from 10 am - 2 pm. A special recession-busting fee to attend is only $75.00! To register, please visit www.randythomasvo.com and click on "Classes" for Detroit VO Workshop. Space is limited. Sign up today!

Spend a few hours with Randy Thomas, one of the most recognized and sought after female voice talents on the planet, as she takes you inside the world of voiceovers at the highest level. She is the first woman in history to announce The Academy Awards and honored to be the voice of the live Oscar telecast seven times. Every night you hear her voice on "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider," two of the the most watched entertainment TV news magazine programs in the world. It's an honor to have her returning to Detroit, where she began her radio career.

The Detroit Radio Reunion is a separate cost and open only to people who work (or have worked) in Detroit radio.

Voiceover seminar highlights:

  • State of the industry today
  • How to make the big segue from radio personality to freelance voice over artist
  • Leaving radio behind and learning to become the best voice actor you can
  • What tools you need to become a top voiceover artist
  • What to look for from other coaches and how to avoid getting caught up in VO marketing scams
  • How to get from where you are now to quitting your full time job to do VO all day long from your home studio

Following the seminar, Randy will sign her book for you ($10 purchase).

See you there!
