Jeff Zimmerman is a veteran voice talent delivering his sound insight to clients around the world from the heart of the Midwest.
Jeff evolved into a full-time voice over talent following two decades in South Florida as both a television sports anchor on the local ABC TV affiliate and a radio news Director on a high profile, personality-driven morning show. Over time he's discovered ways to elevate his game and nurture his skills by seeking out some of the voice industry's key players in areas of performance, coaching and marketing.
From his home recording studio in Deerfield, Illinois north of Chicago, his voice is sought after for its power to pull people into the story with a reassuring depth and caring sincerity they don’t hear every day. He can adapt to a variety of scripts, connecting with audiences through believable and trusted performances in commercials, narration, eLearning, industrials, explainer videos, live event, telephony, audiobooks and more. Jeff understands how to take direction to ensure the client's expectations are met and exceeded.
Jeff is a versatile and technically polished communicator whose production background offers a unique understanding of the voice over industry's creative process. He is dedicated to bringing his professionalism and expertise to every voice assignment and his positive attitude is a trademark of every recording session.
Represented by Chicago Talent Network, Jeff is available 24/7 and offers fast and reliable turnaround.

Rocco Cataldo / Director
Jeff is the ultimate in creative partners. Not only is he invested in the voiceover work and telling a story emotionally through tone and inflection, but he's invested in the relationship. I appreciate every project we've completed together, always look forward to working with him again and again. And I'd need more than a few sentences to rave about his talent. The guy is in a class unto himself.
David Salvi / Creative Producer
I have known and worked with Jeff Zimmerman for years and it has always been a joy. His work stands with some of the Voice Talents that I have recorded such as Walter Cronkite, Dick Cavett and Judd Hirsch (for clients such as Discovery Channel and Amtrak). He has the flexibility and professionalism to step into any situation and bring out the best in any presentation. Highly recommended.
Matt Noble / Producer

J. Michael Collins / Talent Casting & Coach
It's always a pleasure working with Jeff. He has a great sense of humor and really gets into the direction and spirit of the voice our projects need. The voice is an important character in story telling and Jeff is A List.
