Miranda’s a native of the Bay Area who joined smooth jazz KKSF in San Francisco fifteen years ago in a part-time role. Her connection with listeners was immediate, and within a year she became the workday companion of choice in the city by the bay.
Miranda’s been honored by the American Women in Radio and Television association with a 2005 citation for Best Midday Host. She’s also a successful voiceover artist whose biggest role to date is as the voice of Rene Santz in the CD-ROM version of “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?” Miranda is also very active in her community, serving on the board of the East Oakland Youth Association.

Troy’s voice is the right combination of rich timber and smooth delivery. He communicates every liner, sweeper and call with true passion – which is why radio stations use Troy Duran to get close to their listeners.
“I’ve been a radio junkie ever since I was a kid, announcing between the songs on my Kiss albums,” states Troy, who worked as Production Director in radio for nearly 20 years before moving exclusively to voice work. “I love to voice radio stations, because I get to be a part of the battle in numerous markets, and it’s a real honor to be the signature voice. Like the banner you carry on the field."
