About Kareem Taylor
Kareem Taylor is a voice actor, radio personality and writer.
Currently, Kareem is the voice of Black in America, an award-winning documentary series on cable network CNN, host of highly rated radio show Pillow Talk and writer at AllHipHop.com.
Kareem Taylor, 25, aspires to be a voice for children who shared a foster care experience similar to his own. Fittingly, his success following foster care and a challenging childhood, centers on literally using his voice in his profession as a voiceover artist, on the radio and at events.
A native of Brooklyn, New York, Kareem got his start in entertainment at 15-years-old when he landed an internship at Black Entertainment Television. He provided content on BET.com, conducted celebrity interviews and went on a lot of coffee runs.
In 2006, he left New York and headed to Clark Atlanta University, a historically black college in Atlanta. It was there Kareem discovered his love for emceeing, starting off as an announcer for local events.
In 2009, Kareem started his own radio show and afterwards, would stay in the studio to record and audition for voiceover projects. Some nights, he even slept inside. Producers at the nearby radio station, WCLK 91.9, overheard Kareem’s voiceover reel and soon he became the imaging voice for the mid-day show.
Kareem’s breakthrough moment occurred, in 2009, when a television producer from CNN heard his reel and invited him to the networks headquarters. That day, Kareem auditioned for his first commercial. Months later, and just weeks before graduation, Kareem received a phone call that would change his life. He was now the voice of CNN Heroes, a show hosted by Anderson Cooper.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution cites Taylor as “one of the youngest and most successful professional voice actors”, with clients including Comedy Central, Taco Bell and AT&T.
Aside from working, Taylor is very active in his local community and is a distinguished member of an international fraternity.
