Every single day we hear people that we've heard dozens, if not hundreds of times before without even realizing it. There are a handful of voiceover artists who have been doing what they do for decades, mostly anonymously. A few days ago, we lost one of the giants in the business.

As an aspiring voiceover artist myself, I see people like Hal Douglas and Don LaFontaine as icons of the industry, and can only hope to achieve a fraction of their body of work.

Rest in peace, Hal Douglas.
