Veteran voiceover pro DOUG PAUL passed away last night (MARCH 7th) with the official cause of death heart failure resulting from pulmonary fibrosis, according to a note from wife SHARON on his website.
Based just north of ATLANTA on a farm converted into a recording studio in DAHLONEGA, GA, PAUL's career spanned more than 25 years, his voice a fixture on U.S. and EUROPEAN TV and radio, selling "TV series, cars, clothes, services or food."

Among his clients were FORD, WALT DISNEY, COCA-COLA, TURNER BROADCASTING, NBC UNIVERSAL, TRIBUNE ABC SPORTS, CREAM OF WHEAT, CALVIN KLEIN, AMERICAN EXPRESS, MIRAMAX FILMS, HBO, SHOWTIME and DISCOVERY CHANNEL.
