Natalie cut her Announcer teeth at the BBC, where she
stayed for over seven years as one of the longest serving
voices on BBC2 and had the honour of being the first
female voice on BBC3 and BBC4; or BBC Choice and BBC
Knowledge as they were known back then. Since then, as well as freelancing back at the Beeb, she
has moved into the commercial world, working in Continuity
and Promotions for ITV as their primetime live announcer,
launching ITV3 and also on ITV2. More recently
she can be heard announcing live continuity regularly
on Sky, Discovery, Channel 4, More4, 4Seven and E4, so she can safely say
she is one of the most listened to voices in the country.
She is, quite literally, prepared to do anything for
her art. In the past she’s really taken it to
the extreme, including bungee jumping live on air, walking
over burning coals, ostrich racing, devil dancing, scaling
Machu Picchu, climbing Ben Nevis, running the London
Marathon, learning to Thai box in Thailand, learning
Spanish in Costa Rica, riding a Harley across America for a Sky documentary and working with orangutans
in the jungles of Borneo, running with cheetahs and
wild dogs in Namibia, hand rearing lion and hyena cubs
in South Africa and regularly working with the RSPCA….
So, as you can see, she is prepared, willing and able
to take on any challenge!
