We’ve used Rik since I joined the station. His voice sits excellently as our station voice – powerful and strong for our Top of Hour imaging – but his tracks are very versatile, which have led us to use him to voice a number of different programmes and trails. His pacing and strength of delivery come into their own when it comes to sport trails, or situations where we want our imaging to sound dramatic. – Mike Wyer, BBC Hereford & Worcester
I first started working with Rik when I was head of production for Guardian Media’s Real Radio Network and he was so good that when I moved to Bauer Media…I took him with me. He’s a true professional, polite, courteous and an exceptionally good voice over. He’s always willing to go that extra mile to help you out. I can’t recommend him highly enough. – Chris Ward, Bauer Media
