Thanks for opening the door.  I, too, have mixed feelings.  The voice 
that opens the ID sounds too much like  on-air talent doing a promo*, 
not the different-sounding "Really-Big Voice Guy" who only does the 
"Hey, Something Big Here - Listen Closely & Pay Attention!" stuff like 
TOH ID's.   It catches me off-guard momentarily and leaves me feeling 
unsettled.  At first, I thought it was just because it was new, but now 
after all this time, I still can't shake it.

* At first, I thought it was Gary LaPierre, but somehow it doesn't quite 
sound exactly like him
