BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Hollywood actor and Minot native Josh Duhamel is providing the voice for a series of tourism advertisements for North Dakota.
State Tourism Division Director Sara Otte Coleman made the announcement Tuesday at a Bismarck banquet room partially owned by Duhamel. The actor wasn't present.
Duhamel is providing narration for six TV ads. He's being paid $6,600 per spot.
North Dakota tourism officials historically have geared marketing campaigns toward audiences in the neighboring states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Montana, as well as the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
