Listeners to Boston's sports radio station WEEI are likely familiar with the work of Pete Gustin. His is the deep, smooth voice heard in many of the station's show opens, promos, and in the many amusing "bits" created to lampoon sports personalities and even WEEI's on-air personnel.
What most die-hard listeners (including this one) didn't know is that Gustin is legally blind. Think about that for a second. The guy who reads copy for a living... is legally blind.
Gustin has produced a fascinating video that shows how he's become a rising star in the voice-over world -- without the ability to see a script or a teleprompter. Take a look.
We first were alerted to the video through a tweet from someone who's very familiar with Gustin's work -- legendary Boston radio personality Glenn Ordway, who was let go by the station's parent company earlier this year after 27 years at WEEI.
