I’ve written and voiced radio commercials, authored both comedic and non-comedic freelance articles, comedy, satirical pieces, human interest stories, scripts, international press releases, website, media and technical content, done occasional radio color commentary for local sports, and acted in a couple
of movies and plays.
I played a barfly in the movie Hope Springs (2012) Previously I was in the movie
In addition to my own daily, sponsored minute radio spots I’ve voiced commercials for companies, attorneys, mom and pop stores, radio stations, and have broadcasted local sporting events. I’m also the media and technical writer for the clothing company KSpin Designs. For those who’ve seen my typical wardrobe, which highlights a fashion sense akin to a far-sighted circus clown, you already realize I’d have to be a pretty versatile writer to pen words for such a company. If you’re in need of any kind of writing, from something as small as a personalized greeting for your friend or spouse to a big budget movie script; or if you need something voiced, from performing a simple telephone tree voice mail, to announcing for the Tonight Show, contact me through this website, www.chrisjgay.com Customer satisfaction is guaranteed and, if your check clears, so will be mine.

Let My Voice Do Your Talking (Commercial Voice-Over)
So, perhaps you were perusing my web site, saw my writing samples and thought, “Wait, I’ll admit this guy can write- but he performs voice-over and broadcasts, too? I’m very impressed.” Amazingly enough; yes, it’s true. I write and broadcast a daily, sponsored minute humor spot on the radio in Hartford, CT. Though to those who honestly believe that I drive in to Hartford twenty times a month to voice a one-minute radio spot, well, come on. They’re recorded in advance. I’ve written and voiced radio spots for national companies, as well as local businesses and radio station promos. I’ve broadcast live sporting events on the radio and internet, and have been a guest speaker at a college voice-over class.
So what can I do for you? Why, anything you may require. Do you need a voice for your radio or TV ads? Your automated telephone answering service? I can write, or help write, scripting for you. Are you an interested party representing Coca-Cola, yet are somewhat wary of using me because you’ve heard I might prefer Pepsi? No problem. Hire me and I can guarantee you I’ll prefer Coca-Cola. Are you with a major broadcasting company who’s surfing around the net or broadcast dial looking for the next radio superstar? Well, here I am. I’m extremely quick-witted, well versed on politics, sports, et al. Also as you’re now aware, I also know how to properly utilize ‘et al’ in a sentence.
If you’re looking for a talk show host, look no further. Let my voice do your talking. Pretty clever slogan, huh? I just now made it up on the fly; then went and placed it at the top of this Intro for maximum effect. No charge. Have a great day. I hope to talk for you soon.
Advertise With Me On The Radio!
There are many affordable ways to advertise on radio and online. Many of them are routine, mundane and lacking any semblance of creativity. Now, while it’s true I could write and/or voice quality stand alone spots for your business; I also offer a unique, throwback form of advertising that sets your business advertising apart from all of the rest. For nearly seven years I’ve written and broadcast a daily, sponsored Historical Humor Minute on the air over the Hartford, Connecticut radio market. I write a minute comedy spot based on various historical events that have occurred every calendar day, then voice information on my sponsors’ businesses at the end of the spot.
Though my writing is sharp and modern, the concept itself has an old fashioned uniqueness to it you simply don’t see much of anymore. Also, through the magic of modern radio technology, you can sponsor my radio spots in most U.S. markets; so it’s no problem if you’re in Denver or Seattle, and I’m in Hartford. The cost varies based on the market and time of day you’d like your spot to run. I look forward to working with you.
