  Emmett Andrews
I've been working in commercial radio since 1997, starting in Iowa. In 2002, I started working for Emmis Communications in St. Louis, while continuing to do production and imaging for Central Iowa Broadcasting, where I started. Starting in 2012, I headed up the commercial production department at Learfield Sports, which consisted of about 50 sports networks. In late 2014, I moved to Indianapolis and rejoined Emmis as production director. In addition to my role as Production Director, my team and I also handle national commercials for NextRadio. I do voice over work in all categories for many different types of clients and many different projects, including TV, radio, on-hold, industrial, and more. I also have a number of production-only clients, including WWWM in Toledo.

  Rachel McGrath
Fast. Fierce. Female. Rachel McGrath has proven she can play with the big boys. Her former years as an imaging director at iHeart Atlanta give her a unique and valuable advantage- she knows how to deliver copy in a way that works for the client and the producer.  Rachel is the voice of almost 70 radio stations internationally and was recently ranked the number 5 imaging voice in the country- visit New York, Chicago, LA, Atlanta, Baltimore, or Phoenix, and her voice is sure to follow. Been to Walmart recently?  Rachel was right there with you, informing you of todays great deals. If you've ever visited a Hair Cuttery, Rachel's voice was in the chair with you. Rachel's On Hold clients range from Jenny Craig to Harley Davidson and car dealerships across the country. As far as national TV spots go, Rachel has informed you about everything from the latest Disney Princess Bikes by Huffy to the most recent show being put on by Cirque Du Soleil. After 11 years as a voice artist, it would be pretty difficult to go somewhere Rachel's voce isn't!
