For almost four decades now, her name, face, and distinctive voice have been known by audiences everywhere, thanks to her many award-winning works in television, radio, film, digital media, voice acting, stand up comedy, and her award-winning romance suspense novel, DESTINY LINGERS, endorsed by Dr. Maya Angelou.
Most know her by one name, Rolonda, under which she launched her own internationally syndicated talk show (1994-1998), produced by King World Productions and her company, Watts Works.
Before that, Rolonda was a news reporter and anchorwoman at New Jersey Nightly News before moving to New York City where she was an investigative new reporter and anchor woman for WNBC, WABC Eyewitness News, Inside Edition, and then TV mogul Roger King made Ro an offer she couldn’t refuse; her own internationally syndicated TV talk show, ROLONDA!, which you can still watch today on The Rolonda Watts Channel on YouTube!
Ro’s deep, rich, and raspy voice is one of the most recognized in the business. Her clients include, Divorce Court, the Judge Joe Brown Show, CNN, Google, Tropicana, Wells Fargo, Alka Seltzer, Boeing, Orencia, Lego’s City Adventure, Madagascar, Kulipari: Army of Frogs, Cannon Busters, The Proud Family, The Invincible Fight Girl, Tyler Perry’s Medea’s Tough Love, and for close to two decades now, Ro has voiced the role of Professor Wiseman on Curious George. In video games, Rolonda voices Kraken Warrior Priestess, Illaoi, in the billion dollar game, League of Legends.
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
