Hi and thanks for stopping by and welcome to 2018.
I’ve heard it for a long time, “you have a radio voice” or “I know your voice.”

One childhood goal of becoming Vin Scully’s replacement long ago was replaced by my reverence in watching, and listening to his work. My start was as a writer who would read passages of my work out loud for myself to verify the sound of the words, and having an editor comment my voice. Eventually she directed me to my first audition, in which resulted my first voice work. Years have gone by, trips to studios are no longer a requirement, and it has led to this, mikelips.com voice over.

Having long since sworn off hosting another early morning show, I may have discovered a work around, podcasts;
