(June 25, 2012) STAA client Jacob Wilkins is sending his voice to the stars and back. Wilkins has joined Sirius XM Radio as a sports update anchor.
“I will be doing Universal updates (that air across all channels), as well as anchoring updates for “College Sports Nation”, “NFL Radio”, “MLB Network Radio”, “Fantasy Sports Radio”, and “Mad Dog Radio”,” Wilkins says.
“This is a good opportunity as it provides great exposure over a variety of platforms. Sirius XM obviously has a great reputation, and covers a vast array of sports.”
This is just the latest opportunity Wilkins has earned. In March, he began voicing highlights for MLB.com. He also broadcasts high school football and basketball on MSG Varsity. Wilkins was previously the voice of Hudson Valley Renegades baseball.
Wilkins’ new job came about after he had a copy of his demo on hand when introduced to a Sirius executive.
“[It was] a routine meeting with someone I knew at Sirius in January. He asked if I was interested in doing updates, and actually introduced me to an executive producer in his office. Since I had my demo CD with me, all three of us watched some of my reel right there. They were generous enough to ask me to come in to do a few demos. When an opportunity opened around April, they told me I should apply, and the rest is history.”
