PB Talent Will Find Your Perfect Commercial Voice
How much influence does the sound of someone's voice have when listening to an advertisement? Plenty. The sound and tone of a voice can create a specific mood. A Commercial voice that can speak clearly while connecting with the listener is effective in generating interest in a product or service. This requires talented voice actors that understand they are doing more than simply reading a script. Fortunately, Pastorini-Bosby Talent instinctively knows when a voice actor has that special element that elevates them to the top tier of talent.
PB Talent has been working with commercial voice actors for more than 20 years. During this time the agency has had the pleasure to work with some of the best voice talents in the business. Recognition as a top talent agency provides access to emerging as well as established high-quality voice talent.
PB Talent is the place to begin your search for the best professional voices for commercial projects. Whether your project is for radio, TV, or online video agents can assist you with all your casting needs. It's all right if you are not quite sure what the project needs. Sometimes it’s necessary to hear a wide range of voices before you find the perfect fit.
Sample the Voices
You are welcome to browse the huge talent database on our website to see if there is anyone that piques your interest. If you have a particular gender, age, or ethnic group in mind contact us. PB Talent is happy to set up auditions and select the right voice talent for your commercial. Or, go ahead and send us your sample script so that agents can have voice actors do a free audition.

Professional Variety of Talent
PB Talent voice actors are pre-screened, and once selected adhere to the highest professional standards. Any actor selected from this amazing talent pool to be a part of your commercial will work hard to ensure your commercial is a success. If you would like to handle all of the casting yourself, that's fine. The agency will assist you in every way throughout the process. PB Talent works with union and non-union talent in order to provide clients with the broadest talent pool currently available.
Selecting the Right Voice is Important
PB Talent has a reputation for providing stellar voice actors that can do a wide range of commercial projects. Many years of agency expertise reveals that not every voice is a good fit for every project. What may sound nice for an announcement may sound off-putting for a radio advertisement. This is why agents specialize in matching the best talent for each project.
Some voice actors specialize in doing a particular type of commercial reading. Many people in the talent pool have spent years honing their delivery until it is smooth and easy going. Others may have a more energetic delivery that is perfect when you want to create a mood of excitement. A child actor will sound natural even though they are well rehearsed. When you are in need of distinctively clear, crisp readings that provide just the right level of emotion come to PB Talent.
Amazing voice talent can bring your commercial to life.
PB Talent Adds More Christian Speakers
PB Talent agents are the first to acknowledge that there can never be enough love or faith in the world. That is why this agency is committed to continuously building its roster of Christian speakers. It takes courage and dedication to stand up in front of a crowd of strangers and openly proclaim devotion to sharing and promoting Christian values. Speakers are able to do this because they have strong core values.
In today's world, values are extremely important in order to navigate all of the ups and downs that life brings. The best Christian speakers are able to honestly share their personal stories with fellow Christians. When PB Talent adds another Christian speaker to the esteemed roster there is confidence that they are not just talkers, but people living their lives according to their stated principles.
Popular Christian Speakers

PB Talent constantly seeks to add more choices to their roster of talented Christian speakers. The agency has a fantastic group of faith-based speakers and it will only keep getting better. Agents are pretty choosy, though, about who is allowed to be on this special list. That?s because Christian audiences have certain expectations, and PB Talent agents strive to meet them.
Top Inspirational Speakers
Every person designated a Christian speaker is someone that can deliver an inspiring message that will greatly appeal to an audience.
Each one of these speakers has an inspiring story to tell. Although they come from a wide variety of backgrounds and occupations, the one thing they all have in common is that they have, at one time or another, had their faith tested and come out on the other side. Some of these people may be world-famous celebrities that seem to have all the perks that come with great success. But they are also human beings that have experienced their share of trials and tribulations. These speakers are more than willing to share personal details of their life's journey.
A Christian audience, in particular, will appreciate hearing about how a speaker overcame a big obstacle by turning to their faith in God. Speakers also inspire by simply sharing their everyday life experiences. Sometimes just getting through the day can be challenging. PB Talent speakers reveal how they navigate the real world with anecdotes taken from their own lives.
Being Successful While Being Christian
Audiences are often curious about how speakers remain true to their faith while dealing with the pressures of success. These speakers share wonderful insights about this topic.
More to Come

The Variety of Inspirational Speakers at PB Talent is Limitless
One of the best ways to draw support, attendance, and funds to any event is hiring an inspirational speaker. Regardless of the type of event, renowned athletes, entertainers, and politicians as keynote speakers can draw a large crowd to anything from a charity anniversary gala to a university benefit dinner. Almost all celebrities who schedule speaking engagements do so through an agency.
Invariably, the talent agency that offers the most famous and most varied group of inspirational speakers is Pastorini-Bosby Talent. Whether your organization desires athletes, politicians, or celebrities, PB Talent can provide you with an inspirational speaker that will make your function a smashing success. Two of the various examples of the speakers you will find at PB Talent are Linda Ellerbee and Archie Manning.
Linda Ellerbee is a nationally recognized no-nonsense journalist. She began her career as a journalist at CBS and then moved to NBC where she covered national politics for several years. She eventually came to create, co-write, and anchor NBC News Overnight, named the most intelligent news program ever by the duPont Columbia Awards.
She moved to ABC in 1986 and began to anchor and write Our World, a historical news series for which she won an Emmy. She co-founded Lucky Duck Productions in 1987, which began producing documentaries for PBS and eventually produced Nickelodeon's Nick News, which Ellerbee writes and anchors. This revolutionary program broke down the barriers between kids and the discussion of national news and is watched by more children than any other news programs combined. The show has won three Peabody Awards and seven Emmys.
Ellerbee continues to anchor the Nick News specials and travels around the country speaking about her career and, closer to her heart, dealing with breast cancer, which she survived in 1992. Ellerbee travels from New York and is available for speaking engagements, appearances, and endorsements.
Another legendary inspirational speaker contracted through PB Talent is Archie Manning. The father of current football greats Peyton and Eli, Manning is a football legend in his own right. He played college football at Ole Miss, walking footsteps Eli would eventually follow. As quarterback, he played in the first nationally televised college football game, where he set the SEC record for the most total yards in a game: 432, which is still tied today.
After college at Ole Miss, he was drafted in the NFL second overall to the New Orleans Saints. While the Saints remained one of the worst teams in the League during his ten-season stint there, Manning was still able to become statistically great. He led the league in passes attempted and completed in 1972 and was named the NFC Player of the Year in 1978, which was also the first of two consecutive years he was selected to the Pro Bowl. After leaving the Saints, Manning played his final two seasons with the Houston Oilers and Minnesota Vikings, respectively. At the end of his football career, his record was in the top 20 of all-time passing yards in the NFL.
Manning remains a football staple as a regular contributor to the Saints' radio and television broadcasts as well as CBS Sports Football. He travels from Louisiana and is available for endorsements, appearances, and speaking engagements.
Ellerbee and Manning represent the wide variety of speakers available. Contact PB Talent today, and our trained and dedicated staff will work with you to determine the best speaker to make your upcoming event an unqualified success.

PB Talent Provides the Best Spanish Voice Talent in Texas
When it comes to advertising, more and more Texas business owners are realizing the importance of reaching out to all of their potential customers. That's why many of these business owners advertise in Spanish as well as English. Find out some of the specific ways that a growing Texas business can benefit from using Spanish voice talent.
Texas Business' Benefit by Using Spanish Voice Talent
Native Spanish speaking customers will be more likely to support a business that advertises in their language. By advertising in this way, a business is extending an invitation to native Spanish speakers. In effect, the business is communicating that it appreciates and welcomes its Spanish speaking customers.
Texas businesses that don't advertise in Spanish may be missing out on getting the business of a large part of the state's population. If a business has quality products and services, it is essential to reach every segment of the state's population in order to grow and sustain the business. It makes good financial sense to appeal to all parts of Texas' population.
By advertising in Spanish, a company can garner more word-of-mouth business. For instance, if a native Spanish speaker hears a business' advertisement, he or she can tell friends about it. The friends may visit the business and in turn tell other friends and family members about their experience. In other words, the advertising doesn't just stop with the individual who hears it. The reputation of the business and what it sells extends well beyond that.
Why Use PB Talent to Find Quality Spanish Voice Talent?
Not surprisingly, Texas business owners who want to create advertisements featuring a Spanish speaker insist on getting the best talent available. PB Talent exceeds the expectations of business owners. PB Talent is a leading talent agency that can match a Texas business up with a Spanish speaker who is perfect for the advertisement. The PB agency has voice talent with a variety of accents. A Texas business owner can choose what type of accent he or she wants for the ad. This further helps an owner to tailor the advertisement so it reaches the ears of potential Spanish-speaking customers.
At PB Talent, a business owner has the opportunity to hear a variety of Spanish voice talent before making a final decision on which speaker to choose. The professionals at the PB Talent Agency understand that most business owners have a definite idea of what they would like for their advertisement. That's why they allow business owners to hear all of the available options!
The PB Talent agency provides business owners with professional Spanish-speaking talent. The speakers are ready to work with a business owner to make the advertisement sound exactly right. A serious business owner wants professional voice talent that offers top quality work.
Finally, the staff members at the PB Talent agency are helpful. For instance, they are happy to answer the questions of Texas business owners who aren't familiar with the process of acquiring voice talent. They work with owners to figure out the best talent for the assignment. It's easy to get in contact with PB Talent agency via telephone to talk with a staff member. Of course, a business owner can visit the PB Talent agency website to learn more of the specifics on getting Spanish-speaking voice talent.
Since the agency has begun, they have been able to place many different actors into various types of media roles.
