game on! unofficial audition for world news announcer continues


I have been talked in off the ledge (so to speak) on this forum and on others regarding yesterday’s post about whether to continue with the Unofficial Voice Over Casting Call for World News with Diane Sawyer.

Last night, during the debut, there WAS a new announcer, ending the decades old reign of the great announcer Bill Rice. I wasn’t sure, given the circumstances then, if it would be in good taste to continue the fun event.

I am told (repeatedly and unanimously now) it is in perfectly good taste so we shall carry on and gladly accept your continued submissions probably up until the first of the year (January 1, 2010).

Tell a buddy, bring a friend… game on for faux-ditions, baby!

  1. Didn’t see the new open either. Thanks for posting it. I think it’s pretty compelling. I especially like the “global resources of ABC” part. That’s cool.
    I still think there’s a number of “us” who could do a better job on the VO, though

  2. I just want to wholeheartedly thank you for this very fun faux-audition; it’s good, clean holiday fun!

  3. Glad you played Dan, it wouldn’t have been any fun without you.

    Best always,
