“You’re watching Entertainment Tonight!”…“Live from Hollywood, it’s the Academy Awards!”…these iconic phrases are known the world over by Randy Thomas, the preeminent voice over artist in America. Randy’s resume is stunning: The Oscars (8x) The Super Bowl (3x), The Emmy Awards (5x), The Tony Awards (18x), SAG Awards (5x) and Entertainment Tonight (12 years and counting).
Most recently, Randy can be heard on the Music Connection Magazine Podcast on PodcastONE and announcing the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductions, The Kennedy Center Honors, and promo campaigns for CNN. “She is the female standard in the industry,” says Entertainment Tonight producer/director Kevin Gershan.
Thomas describes her voice as “strong, authoritative, warm and elegant.” To bring to life the words on a page, she works with her clients to understand their messages and brands, and uses her acting training to present her voice accordingly. Since her voice is her primary tool of the trade, she keeps it healthy by avoiding acid-forming foods containing sugar, dairy products and wheat, and by drinking water laced with organic essential oils.
Represented by Atlas Talent Agency, Randy resigned her contract continuing her partnership with her trusted Agents Jonn Wasser and Lisa Marber-Rich. Thomas is the accomplished author of “Voice For Hire: Launch and Maintain a Lucrative Career in Voice-Overs” co-written with NY VO Coach Peter Rofe of PDR Voice Coaching Studios. In this fascinating book, Randy explores all the ins and outs of this exciting and lucrative field: auditioning, making demos, training, marketing, script interpretation, animation, radio promos, narration, live announcing, and more. She also holds exclusive endorsement deals with Neumann Sennheiser Microphones.
Randy’s career began as a radio personality in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Miami. Throughout the years, Randy has always given back to the business that has been so good to her, and has done it in a meaningful and selfless way. As an advisory board member of The Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab in Los Angeles, Randy mentors aspiring voice artists with the tools and mindset necessary to succeed in this competitive industry.
Randy’s mantra is “Live your dream, use your voice!” As her level of fame and influence continues to grow, Randy created the highly respected Voice Over Mastery event, an exclusive assemblage of leading international voice over professionals. During the 2-day weekend event, celebrities and coaches – who are experiencing unprecedented success – share secrets and strategies of how participants can achieve a successful career in voice over and beyond.
