About Adam Smith

Me today … what a life in media will do to you!

As I look back on a broadcasting and entertainment career that started in the late 1970s, I have to admit, I never thought I would have been lucky enough to spend my entire career in and around Los Angeles. In my chosen field, LA was in fact, “the place”. And not only did I start out doing exactly what I wanted to, I also realized a great deal of abilities and opportunities far beyond what I had expected.

It all started in radio at the tender young age of 19. Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to have been an on-air DJ, voice-over announcer, voice-actor, on-camera commercial actor, on-stage singer and musician, news producer, news director, production director, operations manager, program director, radio consultant, network operations director, personal consultant to well known sports and music stars, producer of both audio and video commercials, infomercials, documentaries and programs as well as an advertising and marketing specialist.

It has been a phenomenal experience! When I remember those first non-entertainment jobs I had, I could see how my life could have easily been very different if I’d chosen to stay in the “9 to 5” world. By being in radio and entertainment, I’ve had the opportunity to do some absolutely amazing things throughout my career, and learn so much about not just the broadcasting industry, but the entire world of entertainment.

When I was young, I tried extremely hard to leave southern California. I would apply for jobs in New York, Florida, Vegas, Texas, Georgia … anywhere but here in southern California. So it’s funny that my career kept me here, but also very fortuitous. Today I am a freelance producer, director, voice-talent and consultant still living the good life near Los Angeles. Even though the weather is nice, there’s no water and too many people … meh, what are you gonna do? I look at it this way: if I tried to leave for the better part of the last 40 years and couldn’t, why should I now?
