Jünger Audio Helps OFM Deliver Exception Clarity To South African Radio Audiences

South African commercial radio station OFM entertains its audience with a mixture of adult contemporary music, news, weather, traffic and other relevant information. Broadcasting 24 hours a day from its studios in Bloemfontein in the Free State Province, OFM is a lifestyle radio station that likes to connect with its audience through plenty of telephone interaction.

As phone-in programs are such an important part of its remit, OFM wanted to ensure that these reflected the same high audio standards as the rest of its programming. But there was a problem – the audio levels on phone-ins were not always regular and that, says OFM’s technical manager Jan Van Der Walt, was something worth investigating. more

Top Voiceover Artist Joan Baker Finds Success by Cultivating the Talent of Others and ‘Surrounding Herself’ with Neumann Microphones

scaled_e1307412817.jpg

New York–June 21, 2011: In her ascent towards becoming a top voiceover artist, Joan Baker’s success has taken root on two basic principles: “know your voice” and “choose the right equipment.” After getting her start by doing cartoon character voices on cable television, Baker’s talent was quickly spotted by several top voiceover agencies, giving her a platform from which to drive her own success and become aligned with the right tools of the trade. One her first decisions was to use Neumann microphones.

Since then, Baker has built her career not only on doing traditional voiceover work for clients like CNN, the Tribeca Film Festival and The Biography Channel, but her career has blossomed in other areas such as narrating audio-books and teaching aspiring voiceover artists how to take the next step in their own careers. In her book, “Secrets of Voiceover Success” and as co-founder of the annual “That’s Voiceover” conference, Baker describes the importance of equipment selection and her own affinity with Neumann microphones. more
