No Accent

Since I moved to the Chicago area 25 years ago, people have wanted to know what my accent was. As it turns out, I don't have one.

What American accent does Rod have?
His Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Definitely Boston, despite 25 years in So Cal.

You must get a lot of grief for your accent. People give me a hard time just because I pronounce "pen" and "pin" the same way.
