Jon Briggs Voice Over Artiste

Jon's voice is one of the best known commercial voices in the UK. As of 2011 he became the man behind the voice of Apple's iPhone assistant in the UK, Siri. You may also know him as the voice of the BBC's most successful TV quiz show The Weakest Link. Over 12 years and more than 1700 programmes, the show averaged a daily audience of 3.5 million viewers. Amongst the most hardcore fans he is affectionately known as "Statman".

For 13 years Jon was also the station voice of BBC Radio 2 - the most listened to National Network in Europe. Jon worked as an announcer for Channel 4 for 2 years in the late 1980's and his recognisable style led him to spend 3 years as the main promotions voice for BBC1 and 7 years as the voice of Sky Movies.

Jon has voiced many high profile ad campaigns and major awards ceremonies. Over the years you'll have heard him on adverts for Duracell, The Mirror, The Times, Nokia, Acuvue and the inflight TV for British Airways. For many of London's Awards Ceremonies he performs the role known by the industry as "The Voice of God".

You'll also find him on Garmin satnavs, reading SMS messages on Nokia phones (out loud - not just snooping), on numerous National Geographic documentaries and in Kings Cross Station (as the station announcement voice - not just loafing about...)

“Jon injected a much needed inspiration into our messages as the role of moderator he took. His involvement in our activities allowed us to continue drive our agenda, however raising the credibility level a notch as well as getting the journalistic approach to it.

As a person, Jon is very knowledgeable in his line of work. He delivers results on target and beyond. And perhaps most importantly, he makes it easy to work with him, which is extremely valuable.”
