Hello, I'm Peter Baker – a deep, powerful baritone voice - with over 30 years of experience in voiceovers and on-air broadcasting for UK BBC and commercial radio and TV stations. The voice of countless commercials; the voice of many training films and corporate videos for often well-known organisations.
I've also enjoyed recording many audio books for various producers around the world including fiction and factual books. I enjoy a challenge and creating many character voices in a novel that are convincing and help paint pictures in the "theatre of the mind" of the listener is absolutely enormously satisfying.
As well as freelance voiceover work, my career has included broadcast contracts at:
• Piccadilly Radio & KEY 103, Manchester – Breakfast show presenter, Head of Commercial Production & Head of Music
• Ö3 International, Vienna, Austria
• BBC TV NEWS – Newsreader, features reporter.
• ITV Granada – News Presenter, Features Reporter, Self-shooting Producer, Director, voice trainer to ITV news reporters and feature Producers.
Other media skills
As well as being a very experienced audio editor and producer (in charge of Piccadilly Radio’s commercial production department for 6 years),
I am also skilled at video editing using Adobe Premiere Pro; useful if a project involves my voicing a script and then needing to add this to client supplied video or Powerpoint slides.
Previous Clients for voiceovers: McDonald's, Siemens Enterprise Communications, Premier Foods, TATA steel, Serimax, Unison and many UK councils.
