Episode 127: Beau Weaver

Posted on Posted in Blog, Podcast

Today I bring on a Voice Actor with an enormous body of work. Beau Weaver has seen great success in TV Affiliate work, Network Promo, Syndicated TV Promo, Commercial, Narration, Trailers, Live Announce (Emmy’s and more), Animation, Radio Imaging and everything in between. Beau started in radio in the 60’s moving into voiceover in the late 70’s and has been cruising ever since.

Beau has won awards including the Promax BDA Award for best voiceover in television promos, and in 2015 received the special Voice Arts award for outstanding body of work.  He is also on the Advisory Board at the Screen Actors Guild Don LaFontaine Voiceover Lab.

Guests have talked about the “olden days” where they had to send voiceover on TAPE via FEDEX. Well, Beau was one of THE first to do that. He was also one of the very first to have a HOME STUDIO for Voiceover, do his own marketing, have a website that streamed audio and helped pioneer the “road rig.”

Beau was so generous with his knowledge and stories and I am thrilled to have him as a guest.
