Phil Giangrande began his career in post-production at CBS Cable in Connecticut doing work for The Discover Channel, The Learning Channel and Speed Vision. After a few years, he was lured away to work for a small South Florida advertising agency in the position of Marketing Director where he was responsible for the creative direction and management of all incoming accounts. This included becoming a commercial writer and providing a web copywriting service to the clientele of the agency.
Currently, Phil is the Social Media/Media Production Manager for Toni Patillo and a Radio Producer/Board Engineer for iheartmedia in Los Angeles specializing in financial, legal, real estate, business and political talk show programming. For the past 9 years he’s coached business owners through the process of hosting their own show for the purpose of building their brand and client base. During this time he began offering copywriting services for the programs as well as the commercials.
The next step was training as a voice over artist, so Phil attended classes at the prestigious Kalmenson&Kalmenson. Upon completing their Voice-over for professionals program, he began voicing commercials for multiple clients and to date has voiced over a hundred that aired both locally and nationally.
When political talk show hosts at iheartmedia began putting Phil on the microphone during their shows, he realized that he had an aptitude for being a personality on air. Immediately he began working at this skill and got to a level where he could start offering himself as a radio host to the business owners he produced that wanted another presence on their show. The effect was powerful! Branding got stronger and business increased for the shows Phil took on.
Since then, Phil’s added Videographer, Photographer and Social Media to his arsenal.
“I love the creative side of doing business and I’m very lucky that I get to help business owners realize the look, sound and vision that they always wanted.” – Phil Giangrande
