Voice talent, Elizabeth Westfield is forging a fresh chapter for long-running public affairs health program, “Radio Health Journal”. Westfield is replacing voice talent Reed Pence who’s retiring after more than three decades with the show.
Westfield received her broadcast journalism degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and has worked at the Illini Radio Group voicing commercials and hosting multiple on-air shows covering a variety of issues. Since 1992, “Radio Health Journal” has provided Americans with reliable, national coverage on health, science, public policy and other important topics.
Each half-hour show features interviews with world-renowned experts, allowing listeners to get an inside look at the often unapproachable health landscape. Today, the program airs on more than 630 stations across America, serving nearly 700,000 listeners per week.
The addition of Westfield rings in a new era for the show in that it’s now largely female-led, produced and voiced. With March being Women’s History Month, it’s important to honor the contributions of the countless women across history who’ve fought tirelessly for equal rights and opportunities.
“This brilliant team of women would not be in these positions today if it weren’t for the strong females before our time who demanded a seat in front of the microphone or at the boardroom table,” says Executive Producer Amirah Zaveri. “We’re thrilled to welcome Elizabeth to the team and look forward to creating more opportunities for women and minorities in the media.”
