Welcome to Episode 7 of the ESPN PRod Pod, the official podcast of the ESPN Communications Department. The PRod Pod takes you behind ESPN’s unmatched storytelling by introducing the people behind the content – who they are, where they’re from and how they create the magic.
One year ago, when voice artist, author and R&B DJ/enthusiast Cayman Kelly added the title of “Voice of ESPN Radio” to his already impressive resume, he took the opportunity to reflect a bit: “I have turned to [ESPN] as a fan for years,” he said. “Now, to suddenly be a part of the sports magic is surreal! I’m extremely thankful for the opportunity.”
Likewise, Communications Associate Producer Jon McLeod was thankful to have had the time he and ESPN Fan Relations Senior Coordinator Kiana Lowe shared with Kelly earlier this summer for this episode on the PRod Pod.
From his youth in DC to his never-give-up approach in navigating the audio business, Cayman shouts out his wife for helping him follow his dream and in Lowe’s “Fab 5,” he offers some vocal exercises to help all levels of voice artists or public speakers.
As he tells McLeod, “I need to share this story to inspire somebody not just for personal gain. That’s my biggest goal is to invest in another human life.”
