New female voiceover

Recommended Posts

Either there was a really old voiceover there in the Wonder Years or it's a slight inkling that Radio 1 are introducing a new female voiceover.

sounds like a maidstone voice over they used for one big weekend, they did the same thing after a while with the current male voice, he was used for one big weekend and then about this time last year i think he changed to all voice over work. saying that the old lady is back from time to time,

Cringe, Is it Holly from Maidstone?

I think I still prefer Becky the old lady but i'm sure she will grow on me.

They changed the male V/O this time last year so is it on a rotation of change - change the female one year, change the male the next year etc...

seems now like if you do voiceovers for the big weekend, you get the 'big' gig eventually. Didn't the current male one start off as a big weekend voiceover.

It would be quite funny if all the ID's were 'HI I'm Holly from maidstone..this is vernon kay.'

I suppose we'll grow to like her. But I agree Jono, her voice sounds a bit confused on the newsbeat stuff.

I can't work out why those country farmers off of Glastonbury last year haven't got the gig then...

Wherever she's from, she's not from the north (like 90% of BBC output). Is it just me or does she say 'Radio 1' a bit funny in between newsbeat stories. Her voice goes up on the 'rad' if you get what I mean.

It's probably just clips of Scott from early breakfast.

'Quick he mentioned Vernon Kay, we can use that for an ID and pretend it's a hot new voiceover artist!'

I don't like the thin, reedy quality to her voice, she seems a bit, dare I say it, thick and her delivery is poor . :|

I'm certain there are plenty of other people out there with far more pleasant voices and better pronunciation than Holly from Maidstone. I really don't understand why she got the gig?

I think it would be funny if they rotated it with regional accents. On a serious note, does this mean they will keep using people from the big weekend.

I had to laugh at Moyles this morning on Carpark Catchphrase. There was a girl on from Maidstone.

Moyles: "Oh do you know Holly then?"

Girl: "Yeah!"

Moyles: "You know Holly from Maidstone?"

Girl: "Yeah!"

Unfortunately we all do now...

Yeah, that made me smile too this morning. I sense Moyles doesn't quite approve Holly being given the job.

I also think Chops' idea isn't bad. It might be nice to have the announcements/links done in various different regional accents. No Brummie or Welsh ones though please.;)

Was the guy from Preston One Big Weekend not Lip off of Shameless?

It is indeed. I prefered the deeper sounding guy but I suppose they are trying to make them sound youthful. I agree with Nati that they sound a bit thin. I suppose that's why they get voiceover guy in a lot... Speaking of which...

They should get Posh Radio 4 Lady to do all of the voiceovers..spread her popularity!

Yeah Radio 4 Lady and Voiceover Guy ;)
