Pete Gustin Overcomes Blindness To Voice For Fox

Pete Gustin
2017 so far is shaping up and a very good year for Voiceover and imaging specialist Pete Gustin.

He recently landed a plum role as official image voice for the Fox News Channel and Fox News Radio, despite a visual challenge.

Gustin, who is legally blind developed macular degeneration at 8-years-of-age. It eventually led to losing most of his eyesight.

For two years he practiced a technique that would eventually help him land major work in television and radio across the US and the UK. About three yeard ag, Gustin told the story aobut his  “disability” in a YouTube video.

Back in 2013, Gustin told his voice changed when I was 13 years old. I didn’t have to go through the whole Peter Brady thing. It just kind of woke up one morning and was like “Hi Mom” {he says in a deep baritone} and everyone was like you should be in radio! I was like, “Okay, I guess that works!”

.Gustin states "I always knew I had {poor] eyesight and I knew it was a hindrance but, now, I wasn’t exactly captain of the tennis or golf team in my high school, but I was captain of the swim team and an international champion sailor so whatever I could do with my eyesight I would do. I really liked doing voice-overs and I liked doing the radio production and I liked writing and it was like, well, I’m going to do this."
