Production & Voiceover Work

In Shawn "Smith" Peirce's over twenty years of work in professional media, his ability to manipulate, record, and produce great audio products has continued to keep him employed when many of his colleagues have given up the media industry.

Shawn’s producing experience includes many facets, from podcasting and ads, to voiceover work for radio and even in-store retail announcements. He's also written the copy for and produced the audio on some of those same spots, as you can hear and see for yourself, throughout his portfolio.

During the 2016 election season, Shawn was in charge of or on the production teams of no less than four different nationally syndicated radio shows and multiple podcasts. At one point, during the 2016 Republican National Convention, one of Shawn’s clients’ sprung an entirely new podcast on him, on media row at the RNC - and Shawn had to produce the entire podcast from scratch, while producing two other live shows. The result became a regular show on SiriusXM, “The Filter with Nomiki Konst.”

Shawn also produced a podcast for Trident DMG, a strategic communications and public affairs firm founded in part by Lanny Davis. Two of Trident DMG’s other founders, Josh Galper and Adam Goldberg, decided in 2016 to begin an occasional podcast - and so “The Crisis” was born…

During his time in West Palm Beach, Florida, working on national radio, Shawn's voice was requested by the local iHeartRadio cluster for a series of local spots. You can hear his work here on two slightly different spots for the Stuart Florida Air Show, sponsored by aircraft manufacturers Sikorsky, and Pratt & Whitney.

Shawn's positive, energetic delivery has long been a hallmark of his audio work, from on-air to commerical production. That tone can easily be heard in this spot for a local Lincoln, Nebraska bar & restaurant, "Uncle Ron's" that Shawn both voiced and wrote the copy for (at the direction of the client), in June of 2007.

Due to a massive apartment fire in 2008 caused by one of his then-neighbors, most other production pieces from Shawn's nearly two decade career of media work were destroyed. However, two of Shawn's more unusual audio production pieces did survive, thanks to a resourceful former co-worker.

This unique production request came during the time Shawn worked with Wal-Mart, in one of their new experimental stores. At that time, Shawn was hired to help Wal-Mart roll out and promote their "Connection Center" [cell phone] concept - which is now a standard fixture in most Wal-Mart stores. At that time, Wal-Mart broadcast their own in-store radio station twenty-four hours a day, and was looking to experiment with audio interstitial ads, to promote products to shoppers within their own stores. The following two spots were written, voiced, and produced by Shawn for that purpose, and aired within several Wal-Mart stores in Eastern Nebraska during 2005 and 2006.
