The Voice You Hear At Every Airport Belongs To Your Aunt Barbara


The Voice You Hear At Every Airport Belongs To Your Aunt Barbara

Did you know that the woman, you know, that woman, whose voice you hear at every airport terminal, bag carousel and curbside drop-off, not to mention subways, train stations and weather alerts, is actually the voice of 63-year-old Carolyn Hopkins of northern Maine, and she kind of looks a whole lot like your Aunt Barbara.

CBS profiled the ever-caring sexagenarian in this video where she shows where she shows off where she records all her announcements. Turns out she worked for the company that pioneered installing these announcement systems (IED – Innovated Electronic Design), and given that the predominantly male company needed a soothing female voice, Carolyn stepped in and history was made, and your eardrums have never been the same.
