Mary-Lynn Foster, Owner BIGG StudioHi, I’m Mary-Lynn Foster, an award winning radio producer and broadcaster, and the owner of BIGG Studio. I’m also the Vice President and Executive Producer of my own new media company, BIGG Success.

My voice has been used on major market radio stations WLS-AM and WLS-FM in Chicago. I’ve has also done voice over and audio production work for major companies like COUNTRY Financial and Microsoft.

I’ve been co-hosting and producing the top-rated BIGG Success Show since 2007. The quality of our podcast caught the attention of the folks over at Envision Networks. That launched our nationally syndicated feature called BIGG Success in a Minute. It can be heard on radio stations, radio streams, and the iHeart Radio app.

From my many years in radio broadcasting, I was lucky to work with some of the best talent in the industry. I’m able to collaborate with my broadcasting network to bring high quality, professional voice over and audio editing services to you.

Bigg Studio, a dream come true

I’ve spent over 20 years of my life talking a into microphone, editing audio, and creating audio production!

I really can’t believe it’s been that long. Here’s how long it’s been:

When I first started in radio, we played records. So, when I DJ’d, I had to cue up the songs, and sometimes place a quarter on the player needle so the album wouldn’t skip!

Then albums made way for carts (like 8-track tapes with just one song on it). I also became a master at cutting and splicing reel in the on-air studio, and in the production room. Mark where you wanted the edit to start and stop, cut and tape. I really did carry a razor blade, and wax pencil in my purse!

Then carts and reel to reel were left behind for computers and digital editors. Songs in the on-air booth were loaded up automatically. I never had to run to the bathroom watching my second hand with discipline ever again! Heck, I could be gone for 10 minutes at a time now! In the production room, this new technology made producing a breeze! Same principle’s…mark where you want the edit to start, mark where you want it to end, highlight and DELETE! I really don’t miss the razor blade and wax pencil!

I love broadcasting, creating, producing, editing, talking…so all of this explains a lot.

I’d have to say the best part about being a producer, is that I get to take an idea and bring it to life! And after all of the work and tinkering, I get to sit back and listen to the finished product.

Here’s a production that I’m really proud of. My husband (and co-host) George and I created this podcast for The Kentucky Derby. A special thanks to one of my radio mentors, Jerome Ritchey for making an audio appearance in the production!

I look forward to putting my love of production to work for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
