Michael J Schoen is a product of New York City – born and educated.
After hosting music shows on college radio at Queens College, he began a professional radio career, quickly realizing news was the most exciting aspect of broadcasting — a different landscape each day.
His broadcast news career included three major market all-news radio stations. WCAU, Philadelphia; KFWB, Los Angeles and WCBS, New York.
In between, Michael worked at two national networks. The RKO radio network and CBS News, Radio.
RKO was particularly significant, because its format and style were designed for FM Music stations. It was the cutting edge of less formal “conversational” news delivery.
That experience helped to provide a foundation for his network documentary narrations and corporate videos both major parts of Michael’s current repertoire.
His distinctive voice is also known for its reassuring quality, heard especially in medical narrations and commercials for hospitals and pharmaceutical companies.
Michael is known for versatility, ability to take direction meeting quick deadlines and being easy to work with.
