“Here’s what we can say about CTA Guy: He lives in Milwaukee and, before starting his voice-over career in 1990, was a sound engineer who played guitar and keyboards in bar bands. He’s in his 40s, of European descent, married with two kids (so much for those speculating on his sexual orientation)” (Lou Carlozo, April 24, 2002 Chicago Tribune, “The Voice That Moves Millions”).
His first name is Lee (Kyra Kyles, July 11, 2006 Chicago Tribune, “The Man Behind the CTA’s ‘Voice’).
Carolyn Hopkins voices platforms—“Attention Customers: An Inbound Train, To The Loop…” (March 4, 2009 Chicago Tribune, “The CTA’s New Voice”).
“In 2000, the CTA implemented an automated announcement system called the Operator’s Control Unit (OCU) on their trains to take over calling stations and making announcements from the rapid transit operators (RTOs). The recorded messages are digitized and compressed, then loaded into the memory of an electronic card in the car’s onboard communications equipment. In emergencies, the operator can override the system and make manual announcements” (Chicago-L.org/History).
