Are you passionate about your favorite sports teams? Are you inspired to connect with the spirit of your team’s legacy? Do you seek a quality experience as you root for your teams throughout the seasons? Passion, Connection, Quality is what ROOT Sports is all about. And these were the very qualities they sought for the voice of their new television network ad campaigns.
ROOT Sports, the nation’s premier regional sports network, selected voice actor, George Washington III, to provide liners and promotional spots for the television network’s programming. DJ Hammond, Promotions Manager at ROOT Sports Northwest, said “We listened to many voiceover talents, but George really stood out. He took the time to understand the project and deliver exactly what we were looking for. His response time and communication throughout the process is also top-notch.” Throughout the year, you’ll hear Washington’s strong, passionate voice when you tune into ROOT Sports Northwest’s broadcasts of teams in the region.
In their Northwest region, ROOT Sports’ programming includes the Seattle Mariners (MLB), Seattle Seahawks (NFL), Seattle Sounders FC and Portland Timbers (MLS), University of Washington Huskies, Washington State University Cougars, University of Oregon Ducks, and Oregon State University Beavers (Pac 12), Gonzaga Bulldogs (West Coast Conference) and Seattle University Redhawks as well as the nationally syndicated Dan Patrick Show.
A professional voice actor since 2003, some of George Washington III’s voiceover credits include CarMax, ESPN, McDonalds, Hewlett Packard, the Louisiana, North Carolina and Tennessee Lotteries, Hooters, EA Sports, IKEA, the Tennessee Valley Authority, ADP, Opera Carolina, Time Warner Cable, the Charlotte Bobcats, IBM, Capital One, Whole Foods, Cox Cable and Mass Health.
