This series of podcasts on radio and radio production is in three parts: Levels One, Two & Three. Level One is the most basic and Level Three is the most complex. This is Level One and is the simplest. Annette Rizzo is a professional voice artist and agent. In the 25 years she’s spent in the industry she has worked in the following capacities:

  • Lecturer at University of Winchester
  • Freelance Producer
  • Presenter
  • Reporter at BBC, UK Commercial Radio & US NPR

This includes commercials, corporate videos and presentations, e-learning, web work, audiobooks and more, as well as advertising copywriting.
