Las Vegas news anchor Dave Courvoisier admits he’s living out one of his dreams, on the anchor desk at KLAS. “I just knew I’d eventually be the next Walter Cronkite or Peter Jennings,” he writes on his blog. “Then, I realized I had at least one more good thing left in me–it was voice-acting.”
Courvoisier now has a second job as a voice actor and voice over artist, and today he’s releasing a book on the subject. “More Than Just a Voice” is aimed at voice talent, with advice on how to succeed in a very competitive industry. And no, he’s not expecting a New York Times bestseller:
I will be lucky to break even on the expense of this book. I’ve already spent thousands, and I don’t care. Maybe I could’ve done it for less, but I was a publishing newbie, and once I started, I knew I wasn’t gonna quit until I was published.
