The Jeanie LoVetri Show: Our Vocal Universe

The Jeanie LoVetri Show: Our Vocal Universe is a new program currently on Manhattan Neighborhood Network's MNN HD, the community channel. The program features interviews with experts in the world of voice in all its forms. Upcoming shows will feature guests who are actors, speech teachers, medical doctors who deal with the voice (laryngologists), speech language pathologists with expertise in voice, choral conductors, music educators, voice science researchers, announcers, clergy, singers and others who rely upon the voice in their line of work. We may also include writers who must have a unique voice as well. Currently only those living in Manhattan (New York City) can view the shows, but we will soon open a designated YouTube channel to highlight the shows and allow viewers from all over to subscribe to the full episodes. If you would like to suggest a New York City based vocal expert, or if you have someone who is willing to be Skyped in, please contact us. We are open to your feedback and will listen to your comments as we proceed in this exciting new direction. E-Mail us at
