Strangely enough our friend, George Eisenhauer, in addition to his announcing duties @ KDKA-TV was also the voice for many years on radio ads for the former Kauffman's department stores (nee Macy's), and HJ Heinz, (a radio spot selling gravy if i recall).

Bill Ratner - Various movie promos

 

Yeah... I'm pretty sure I heard him in a commercial for the "Barnyard" DVD last night.

Is it true that Frank Gari (or his company) did commercials in the past?

 

Yes. There are a few on his site, even. Here's my addition to the thread: Alan Bleviss, of WRC, KYW and Enterprise Rent-a-Car fame on Adult Swim's "Morel Orel" promos. :p

I heard Eric Gordon while waiting in the security checkpoint queue at the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport recently. He voices over this video that plays as you're waiting to go through the checkpoint. "A reminder, guns, knives, and other weapons are not permitted through security..."

I heard Charlie Van Dyke's voice on an Advertisement for a local furniture store here in Chicago about a few months ago.

In the recent Chanel No. 5 perfume commercial with Nicole Kidman, you can hear Ron Rolland (the voice of WLS-TV ABC 7 Chicago). Listen very closely... you'll (briefly) hear his unmistakable voice at the 31 second mark.

John Young was a big voice guy for Ford Motor Company at one time...the last I heard him on a Ford commercial was back in `05 I think.

I heard the voice over of FOX News Channel in the game GTA IV... as an announcer for Weazel News (spin-off of FOX News Channel).

 

Anybody knows the name of the FNC voice-over? I mean the one who also did "News at the Speed of Live, this is FOX Report" on the old FOX Report and the voice over for the promos.

Yeah kinda strange though... Greg O'Neill doing the voice for Weazel News... which actually makes fun of FOX.

It's neat to hear Boll Ratner's voice in the Old Navy commercials.

 

Bill Ratner also does some of the commercials for Popeye's Chicken.. It was funny a couple years ago when WBBM would air the Popeye's Chicken commercial right next to a CBS 2 News promo in the afternoons and early evenings.. You'd hear the exact same voice in both. I did e-mail Ratner and he did confirm that he was the voice in the Popeye's Chicken commercials.
