Professional Announcer, Professional Emcee - Russ Walton, Event Host

DeeJay’s and voice talents on the radio or on TV are often assigned the title of professional announcer, but we will focus on the other half of the announcing world –– hosting and MC-ing (or emcee-ing). For any live event, the announcer plays a crucial role. The professional announcer is responsible for getting the audience enthused and keeping the them entertained during downtimes.


Truth is, the announcer or professional emcee is really playing the role of an entertainer. As an entertainer, the announcer guages the audience and chooses ways of keeping them happy.


Another crucial duty of the professional emcee or professional host is making sure the sponsors and vendors happy as well. Sponsors and vendors provide necessary event funding and their payoff includes mentions by the professional announcer.


Hire Russ Walton as a Professional Announcer, Live announcer, or professional emcee. For the best events, use Russ for Live announcer demos, professional emcee samples, or professional announcer demo, cuts of live announcer and perhaps professional emcee as well as the professional announcer. Russ Walton provides Professional announcer services, and is a long time professional emcee or mc services.

Watch out for the dangerous part of being the emcee –– mispronunciation. Getting a name wrong is the single most offensive faux pas an MC or professional announcer can make. Get a list of the names of the participants and key players and have them spelled phonetically. Practice the names before the event and you should be good to go.
