To those hearing Herb for the first time, his quintessential ability to keep an audience informed and entertained at the same time will be obvious from word one. Millions know him as "the voice" of the Chicago Air and Water Show that dazzles hundreds of thousands every year along the lakefront. He has become a household name among Chicago fans and the air show industry nationwide. And his reputation as a consummate professional who talks the talk and walks the walk continues to grow today.
Watching Herb in action on the announcer's stand, it becomes obvious that reading notes while performers dazzle spellbound fans zooming through the sky is only part of what makes Herb's announcing so impressive.
