3 thoughts on “How a podcast pitch became a casting call for NPR announcer

  1. This is the man chosen for the job? Every time I hear him his voice is different. He first started with a faux Barry White baritone and then changed to a higher voice with over emphasized enunciation. His voice is like a chameleon. He’s trying way too hard to pronounce words. There is nothing natural to his voice. He sounds like a rank amateur. This is a voice NPR went crazy about?’ He doesn’t match up to the standards of broadcast excellence that NPR is known for. I’m disappointed.

  2. I have NPR on all the time at my house so that my kids have positive role models to influence their speech development. But when Chioke I’Anson comes on, the radio goes off.

    I don’t want my kids speaking like him!
