Voiceover specialist and actress SABRINA FARHI is the new voice of NPR's underwriting announcements, as the network adds its first on-staff announcer. FARHI will be the voice heard saying "Support for NPR comes from..." on broadcast and digital underwriting announcements starting in NOVEMBER. She will be heard alongside longtime underwriting voice FRANK TAVARES, who has been voicing the credits for over three decades, through the end of the year before becoming the sole voice.
VP/Programming ERIC NUZUM said, "Out of hundreds of voices, SABRINA's immediately stood out for its warmth and conversational approach. We think listeners and supporters will find her engaging."
