After the passing of legendary announcer Charlie O’Donnell in November 2010 the long time running game show Wheel Of Fortune is searching for a new announcer. They’ve been auditioning talent for the past several months in an effort to find the perfect voice for the show.
This week featured Joe Cipriano who is a highly accomplished announcer and voiceover artist with 27 years in the industry. Cipriano has voiced the Emmy Awards, GQ Magazine’s Men of the Year Awards, the VH1 Honors and many more. His audition runs until March 11th on CBS.
Lora Cain also spent some time as guest announcer for the show and was the first female announcer to ever audition for Wheel Of Fortune. Cain has provided voiceovers for Jimmy Kimmel Live, Platinum Weddings, Stranger Than Fiction and Fallout: New Vegas – to name just a few.
There are more guest announcers to come. Each announcer gets to spend about a week on the show learning the ropes and getting to know Pat and Vanna but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out who the winner will be.
The producers are putting a huge emphasis on viewer opinion. Fans of the show are encouraged to submit their votes by leaving feedback at www.wheeloffortune.com/feedback or on the wall at www.facebook.com/wheeloffortune.
