“Stand Clear of the Closing Doors, Please”

Here’s a short doc about someone you might recognize, although not by his face: the voice of the New York City subway system. A radio vet and Bloomberg News reporter, Charlie Pellett has made a living off his speaking talents, but perhaps his most lasting contribution to his city will be the one day of MTA work he did. The noticeable difference in clarity between his announcements and the ones on the older trains may explain why some people become voice stars, and others become train conductors – you can actually understand him!
