AudioFile magazine has revealed its latest Golden Voices honorees, with three narrators receiving the honor that “celebrates a voice artist’s iconic role in the field of narration and recognizes those who have made significant contributions to the audiobook art form.”

The newest Golden Voices class includes Dominic Hoffman, a theater and television actor who has lent his voice to books including Yaa Gyasi’s Homegoing and James McBride’s Deacon King Kong and The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store. A story collection written by Hoffman, Late Rehearsals, is scheduled for publication next year by Simon & Schuster.

Robert Petkoff, a theater and television actor, also received a Golden Voice honor; books he has narrated include Annie Proulx’s Barkskins, Michael Koryta’s Those Who Wish Me Dead, and Benjamin Hale’s The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore.

Also winning the honor was Kate Reading, who has narrated books such as Brandon Sanderson’s Rhythm of War, Sherry Thomas’ A Conspiracy in Belgravia, and Patricia Cornwell’s Dust.

Robin Whitten, the founder of AudioFile, said in a statement, “An audiobook by a Golden Voice narrator assures outstanding listening. Our three 2024 Golden Voice narrators have exceptional performance skills, are intimately attuned to their authors, and set the gold standard (pun intended!) in diverse genres and styles.”

This year’s honors form a milestone for AudioFile, which has now recognized 50 voice artists. Previous honorees include Dion Graham, Julia Whelan, and Edoardo Ballerini.
