…I had a moustache.
For a TV News Anchor…that’s odd. Surveys show that viewers have a lower level of trust for on-air newspeople with facial hair. After all, what are they trying to hide?
That’s ultimately why — 20 years ago — I shaved it off.
Nothing has convinced me to bring it back…until now.
“Movember” as you know, is a month for awareness of men’s health issues. this is a movement that has been steadily gaining strength, and this year, I’m using it as an excuse to grow back the ‘stache (and raise some money for a good cause). My news director gave me the go-ahead on-air, and many of my male news colleagues are joining in.
To that end, would you consider giving a donation of any size? Here’s the link to join my Movember Team.
What does this have to do with voice-acting? Not a darn thing.
Oh, and here’s a pic taken hours ago of 2-day moustache growth (with a little on-air makeup mixed in).
I clearly have a long way to go… and I guarantee, it’s not going to be black. That’s what happens over 20 years. :/
