DVRs. iPods. Hulu. Netflix. Text messaging. These days, itâ€™s harder than ever to get an audience, much less keep them engaged during the commercials. You canâ€™t bludgeon them into listening. You need to sneak up on them quietly.
Thatâ€™s how Dougâ€™s been doing it for 20+ years.
Next...on a very special episode of UNnouncer.comâ€¦
"Beuller?" "Beuller?" Who hasnâ€™t been bored into submission by the endless drone of someone who doesnâ€™t have the slightest clue how to keep the audience interested?
Well, Doug knows how to do it. Have a listenâ€¦and just try to tune out.
No, he doesnâ€™t do morning zoos. And he doesnâ€™t have wacky sound effects. But if you want to turn up your listenersâ€™ attention meters â€“ tune in to Doug Turkel.
Turns out, Lucyâ€™s not the only one whoâ€™s got some â€˜splaininâ€™ to do. Trash those infuriating instruction manuals and let the calm, reassuring voice of Doug Turkel tell you how itâ€™s done.
Once upon a time, books were flat, dull and manually operated. Then, along came voiceover talent Doug Turkel. He huffed, and he puffedâ€¦.and he breathed life into every word on the page.
And we all lived happily ever after.
