MEDIA RELEASE – O’Connell Celebrates 35 Years in Voiceover

Peter K. O'Connell Your Friendly Neighborhood Voiceover Talent logo BlueRALEIGH, NC March 17, 2017 – – When the very young Peter K. O’Connell began his voiceover at a Dayton, Ohio radio station in 1982, Madonna didn’t have her first hit song yet, Reagan was president and the Internet wasn’t even a thing! Oh and O’Connell sported a mullet (business in front, party in the back).

Now celebrating 35 years as a voiceover talent, the most astounding professional accomplishment noted by O’Connell was his ability to keep working as a professional voice talent. “In the 80’s, we didn’t even understand you could have a career in voiceover,” he said.

Surprise!

With steady business from new and returning voiceover clients, the anniversary snuck up on O’Connell until he was asked by one of his three children (another wonderful surprise he didn’t ponder in ‘82) how long he’d been working in VO. The anniversary seemed like as good a reason as any to freshen up his marketing tools including a new website, branding and voice-over demos.

Having just moved to Raleigh, NC from Buffalo, NY, O’Connell’s new branding was partially inspired by his family’s new home. “I was surrounded by University of North Carolina blue, so I thought I better add that color to my logo ” he joked.

Thirty years later, having voiced hundreds of commercials and narrations since graduating from UD, O’Connell got to share his gratitude for the University when he was profiled recently in the school’s award winning University of Dayton Magazine. As well as featuring his professional accomplishments, the article noted his family’s recent move from Buffalo, NY to Raleigh, NC.

audio'connell_logo_blue_raleigh, NCRALEIGH, NC, August 10, 2016 – – audio’connell Voiceover Talent has relocated its studios from Buffalo, NY to Raleigh, NC. Proudly born and raised in Buffalo, company owner and male voiceover talent Peter K. O’Connell made the announcement today citing family, rather than weather as the reason for the move.

“It figures that now that Buffalo is on the rebound and enjoying a well deserved resurgence in popularity from both a business and community perspective, I move away,” O’Connell joked. “It was a nice opportunity for my children to be closer to their grandparents and all the other benefits of the move just sort of presented themselves to make the choice easy,” said O’Connell.

The company’s voiceover studio is already up and running in Raleigh with some voiceover projects having already been completed there. O’Connell noted, “One of the great things about voiceover today is you can live darn near anywhere and as long as you have superior acoustics, excellent technology and great customer service, clients will find you.”

While the studio’s address changed, the phone, email and web addresses remain unchanged.
