Profile: Ken Scott, also known as “That Voice Guy” is one of the leading voice actor/narrators in America.
He had his first job as a radio disc jockey before he turned 16. Ken held down 4 different radio jobs simultaneously at one point during his teen years. At his first ‘full-time’ gig at WDRM-FM in Huntsville, Alabama, Ken became the first talent in that stations history to cross the ratings threshold of a 30 share in the coveted 25-54 demographic. Ken accepted his first management job in 1992 when he left his familiar southern birthplace to become group Program Director for Prarieland Broadcasters in Decatur, IL. In 1995 he very nearly took a different path when approached by the local ABC TV affiliate to do on camera weather reports. Ken succeeded as a TV weather-caster, continuing this for just over a year. What seemed a promising career came to an abrupt halt in 1996 when he answered the call of yet another ABC broadcast property, WLS in Chicago asked him to join their radio team. He became the Creative Services Director for WLS-FM, which had multiple manifestations during his 4 year stint. From Kicks Country to CD 94.7, he thrived in his new major market environment. While contributing creative efforts to all the ABC/Disney properties in Chicago (WLS-AM, ESPN radio, Radio Disney and ABC 7), Ken managed to distinguish himself among his peers by winning trophies in the Chicago A.I.R. Awards and the coveted Helen Cody Baker Awards. He was nominated a record 13 times for his creative achievements. In 1999, Ken left ABC, ascending to a lucrative position with TourDesign Creative Services in Indianapolis. There, he created radio and TV ads for the entertainment industries’ elite. Neil Young, Toby Keith, Eminem, Dixie Chicks, Jon Stewart, Sarah McClachlan and hundreds more.
Ken left Tourdesign in 2009 to focus full time on his voice acting and narration career. Today, you can hear Ken’s voice on radio and TV stations all over the world, as well as countless websites. His client list is extensive, including the likes of Pacific Life, Humane Society, Mattel, Universal Studios, Visa, ABC, Disney and hundreds more.
