Dean Wendt

Dean Wendt joins you weekdays on The Breeze 94.5 from 10AM-2PM.

I am probably best known as the voice of Barney The Dinosaur on the hit children’s show Barney and Friends. I was also the co-founder and Disc Jockey on Radio Disney but left to dedicate my time to voicing “Barney” in 2001.

My voice has appeared in various Barney mediums including concert tours around the world like “Barney’s Colorful World” and Barney Live “The Let’s Go Tour” and has also appeared in over one-hundred TV shows and over 25 videos. My experience includes over 20 years on radio stations.

My performance experience also includes live theater, appearing in Our Town, Mother’s Courage and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at the Circle Theater in Chicago.

I graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in English/Humanities from the University of Illinois, Champaign, IL.
