The Voice Report maintains a long history and reputation as a high-caliber, subscription-based information resource for communications technology professionals.
Thousands have benefited from Voice Report’s news and guidance since the publication was established in 1979 as Telephone Angles. It was acquired in 1982 by UCG, the parent company of CCMI. In 1988 its name changed to 411. The information service became The Telecom Manager’s Voice Report in 1998 to reflect our tightly defined focus on serving our core readership. To address the shift of telecom management to a wider array of IT professionals, the name was streamlined in 2006 to it's current Voice Report title.
Our Dedication to Excellence and Pride in Independence
An array of intense, talented, service-oriented journalists have graced Voice Report’s editorial helm since its inception. Highly coveted awards from the National Press Club and Specialized Information Publishers Association are among the many honors that have been bestowed upon our information service.
But winning awards is not Voice Report’s primary mission. Rather, our publication is dedicated to providing communication technology professionals with highly valuable, actionable, telecom-related guidance that they can’t find anywhere else. We also take great pride in our fiercely independent approach to journalism. Because we take very little money from advertisers, we are not constrained -- like other publications -- from reporting the unvarnished truth about communication technology products and services.
Our Other Services, including Conferences, Telecom Junkies and Telecom-Talk
In addition to our award-winning, bi-weekly print product and online information service, Voice Report’s staff also is responsible for organizing more than a dozen live and online training events each year, recruiting some of the telecom profession’s leading experts to share their best strategies. Regular annual events include Telecom Negotiation and Telecom Expense Management National Summit.
Voice Report also is responsible for the creation of Telecom Junkies, an informative, often irreverent and always fun interview-style podcast for communications technology professionals. Recorded every two weeks (give or take), Telecom Junkies features Voice Report’s editors breaking down some of the most important events in telecom with some of the industry’s savviest and most opinionated leaders.
Since 1998, Voice Report has sponsored Telecom-Talk, an active e-mail listserv community where more than 1,000 telecom pros exchange questions and answers, regularly sharing their best strategies for maintaining communications and reducing telecom expenses at their enterprises.
