Passion, connection, and quality is what ROOT Sports is all about. These were the qualities they sought for the voice of their new television network ad campaigns.
Root Sports, the nation’s premier regional sports network, selected voice actor, George Washington III, to provide liners and promotional spots for the television network’s programming.
DJ Hammond, Promotions Manager at ROOT Sports Northwest, said “We listened to many voiceover talents, but George really stood out. He took the time to understand the project and deliver exactly what we were looking for. His response time and communication throughout the process is also top-notch.” Throughout the year, you’ll hear Washington’s strong passionate voice when you tune into ROOT Sports Northwest’s broadcasts of teams in the region.
In their Northwest region, ROOT Sports’ programming includes the Seattle Mariners (MLB), Seattle Seahawks (NFL), Seattle Sounders FC and Portland Timbers (MLS), University of Washington Huskies, Washington State University Cougars, University of Oregon Ducks, and Oregon State University Beavers (Pac 12), Gonzaga Bulldogs (West Coast Conference) and Seattle University Redhawks as well as The Dan Patrick Show.
A professional voice actor since 2003, some of George Washington III’s voiceover credits include CarMax, ESPN, McDonalds, Hewlett Packard, the Louisiana, North Carolina and Tennessee Lotteries, Hooters, EA Sports, Ikea, the Tennessee Valley Authority, ADP, Opera Carolina, the Charlotte Bobcats, IBM, Capital One, Whole Foods, Cox Cable and Mass Health.
