I've been concerned about the announcer situation as well. I don't dislike the female announcer, but I was wondering... do you think it MIGHT be possible to consider having the user pick which announcer/announcer-mix he'd like to have? Or would that be too much work?

I'm thinking:
default= female
male1= original male
male2= UT-guy

mix options:
a-announcer for regular announcements (welcome to the twisted treeline, etc)
b-announcer for kill announcements (triple-kill!, godlike!/legendary!)
c-same announcer for both...

What do you think?

I think it would be great to allow people to choose their announcer's voice. Examples: Unreal Series, Your GPS

I personally feel the female announcer fits nicely with the game's arcade and quirky atmosphere. However, there is something rather bland, or perhaps something missing with her voice.

To be completely honest, the best game announcer I have ever heard has to be the Team Fortress 2 announcer, Ellen McLain. And subsequently, her voice would fit LoL perfectly.

I've often felt while playing that the current female announcer is... decent; however, Ellen McLain's voice would absolutely top off LoL's audio repertoire and add depth to the announcing. To put it bluntly, having Ellen announce "an ally is legendary!" would give players a complete auditory orgasm.... Well, at least it would to me.

Just in case one has not heard her voice, the audio clips from TF2 can be found here: http://www.soundboard.com/sb/TWIN_SUNS.aspx

Fantastic!
