For 20 years, Charlie Pellett has been a news anchor and reporter for Bloomberg Radio. But he has also been the voice of the New York City subway system.

Pallett is most famous for the iconic and much imitated, “Stand clear of the closing doors please” announcement, according to Untapped Cities.

Pellett’s voice was used as a recording on the newest line of subway cars, which came into service in 1999. [Untapped Cities]Christopher Cameron
