I have a deep voice. I have been compared to Jame Earl Jones. Also, women really like it for some reason. Not that I am complaining :D
I have been told to work in radio, but never was interested: I have a foreign accent that will probably never go away so I don't think they would be interested.
So, what else is out there?
I know this post sounds very masturbatory, but you try finding a modest way to talk about your drop dead gorgeous voice! :D

Are you a man or a woman? Your post doesn't specify, and one cannot take anything for grated these days.

If you're a woman, then you might want to stop taking supplements. If you're a man, then you can probably just walk around all day talking out loud and somebody will invariably approach you with ideas to make money with your magical pipes.

You could still do radio. Here in Rochester NY you should hear Brother Wease. He has the raspiest voice I have ever heard. He has had a VERY popular morning show for over a decade. My apoligies to the show because I can't remember how long he has been on the air.

Perhaps you could be "the guy" that does the voice for movie previews? Now that would be cool!

I'd sing in a heavy-metal band. And if I chose to have somebody else have a deeper-voice, I'd give it to Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit. I hate Limp Bizkit. But if the front-man (boy?) didn't sound like a 13-year old girl, I probably wouldn't dislike the music as much when I do have to hear it.:)

If your voice is also very loud, you could go into Upper Management in some corporation (no special knowledge or experience is needed) :)

His voice is shot! (He's been here for decades, I think). Greg -- have we crossed HTF-paths? I don't recall meeting another Rochesterian around here. Where ya at?
Holadem: do you want to do entertainment business? If not, then just keep doing what ever you do now, and be known as the engineer/manager/salesman/whatever with the sexy voice :)
But, like others said, you could pursue voice-overs, voice-acting, radio, etc. A friend's sister got noticed and became a "hand" model! Her hands have appeared in some ads in the Seattle area, apprently. And there's a lady who does the voice for On-Star and all sorts of other phone-voice services. So there are all sorts of nifty jobs for people with attractive physical traits.

You could probably make it go away. If you were serious about doing commercials or getting into showbiz, hire a voice coach. Celine Dion did that and she used to have a strong French accent, now its barely detectable.

That's the beauty of lucrative radio/voiceover. If your voice is good, you can make a bunch of money by only putting out a little effort. You will have more free time and money to do things that do interest you.
As an aside, if everybody found work interesting, they would have to stop calling it work and start calling it fun:)

I also have a very deep voice. Maybe it's because of my size (6'5" 300lbs). I'd agree with you about how much chicks dig the deep voice. My girlfriend loves it.

If I had a dime for every time someone told me I should be on the airwaves, I'd be a very rich man. I'd like to think that I would be pretty good at it. The only problem is, except for applying at some stations through normal channels, I don't have the slightest idea how to get into the field.

I am 6'3", 255lbs. Aaah Kevin, poor us... it is so hard being a tall, built guy with a deep voice that you don't know what to do with... :D
