The TV affiliate voice represents the brand of the station. It adds personality and sets the tone for how the audience should feel and react
Why the Voice Matters
There are a few things to consider when finding the voice for your station: availability, adaptability, and experience. This is an incredibly fast paced industry. News does not stop and there is always something to deliver to an audience. Typically, these promos and announcements need to be on air within a few hours.

News stations ultimately mirror life. There are happy, joyful events to promote, and, seemingly more often than not these days, terribly heartbreaking stories to deliver. It is imperative for the TV affiliate voice over to match the tone of the script. Being able to interpret and adapt to any script is the difference between a successful announcement and one that falls under the radar. Kevin Kilpatrick is not new to the voice over world.

Connection and Community
The reason many people keep tuning in to the news is due to trust and loyalty. Why switch things up when the current method works great? Established trust makes keeping viewership easy, but how do you make that happen in the first place? It is all in the voice. You need a sound that invites people into the conversation and makes them feel a part of the dialogue. It is important for a viewer to be engaged and compelled to act or continue watching. This is where Kevin comes in. His smooth and friendly way of speaking makes people trust what he has to say. Paired with a great script, any announcement or promo thrown his way is sure to land. Kevin knows how to interact with people. He has always loved being the center of attention, so holding a crowd is a no brainer. When you need a voice that is compelling and versatile enough to deliver any message, Kevin is your guy.
Entertainment is Also a Part of the Equation
While trust keeps viewers coming back, what makes them want to stay for the entire duration of the show or promotion? Having the right voice for whatever the message is a handy tool to have in your pocket. The voice of your station needs to match your brand and deliver the tone of the announcements. No one wants to hear about the big game happening next weekend from someone who sounds like they don’t care. Invest in a voice that will be excited to talk about a local event, sounds heartbroken at the latest bad news, and is charming to the viewers when discussing the news schedule.
