Bill_bw (5)“I was a childhood star. I talk to myself in various dialects at home. Are we multi-tracking?”

Meet the voice behind many of METRO’s radio spots! Bill has been recording in the studio for over four decades and was the familiar voice of WJW Fox 8 Television in Cleveland for over 30 years.

But his talents aren’t limited to his work behind the mic. Bill had an acting role in the movie “Unstoppable,” starring Denzel Washington, and in several television commercials, including one for METRO as their unofficial salesman Philip D. Buss! (See what we did there?)

“I could talk your leg off about the places I’ve been and the people I’ve worked with over the years. Call me if you’d like to hear about lunch with Madonna … ha.”

Keep your ears open for new radio spots coming soon!

“We’re going to win an award with this one.”



“I’ve been riding METRO off and on for about 20 years. I take Arlington — the #2 — to the grocery store and the #1 to the mall. Lately I’ve been taking Howard/Portage Trail to visit my wife who is in a nursing home in Cuyahoga Falls. I always say hello and goodbye to all the drivers.”

Akron-Canton Food Bank_Amber“We come up (to the Transit Center) once a month to help people sign up for food stamps and SNAP benefits. People get excited about this because it saves them a trip to Job & Family Services. Us being the middle man makes it easier. They can bring proper verification and it gets the ball rolling. Last year we helped about 150 people.”
