    Bill Kurtis has branched out into radio of late, becoming the emcee of "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me!" on NPR, as well as becoming the imaging voice for WGN 720.

    Oh yes, I'm very familiar with WWDTM. I used to hate the show until I actually started paying attention to it and found it funny. But in this 30 Rock episode, he plays a voice that speaks to Tracy Morgan's character. It was only one line in one episode, but it was undeniably his voice. (Yes, I'm only about ten years late to watching 30 Rock...)

    And I swear he's done some radio spots for the Wisconsin Lottery as of late.

    As a "Wait Wait" listener, it'd freak me out if this is the case.

    And let's not forget his narration for both Anchorman movies.

    I was at Six Flags New England today and I thought I heard Doc Morgan on the park's intercom.

    Since this thread was dead when it happened... Beau Weaver voiced a few characters in the "Old World Blues" DLC for Fallout: New Vegas (which released in 2011!)

    He does commercials for Six Flags Over Georgia too. That was quite the surprising thing to hear on WSB not long after moving here...

    Jim Cutler voices promos for the shows Misfit Garage and Fast 'n Loud, which my dad watches all the time. I just remember one day my dad watching Fast 'n Loud, and I immediately recognized Jim's voice.

    Steve Kamer is the voiceover of the In-Store Audio Network.

    Which, as you might imagine, you hear when you're in stores.

    Chicago's hometown airline, United, picked a very appropriate voice to narrate this beautiful 747 retirement video:
