Homeless Man With Golden Voice Getting Offers From Cavs, Others

By now you've seen the video of Ted Williams, the homeless man in Columbus with the 'golden radio voice.'  The name isn't bad either.  Williams shows off his voice, then describes how drugs and alcohol took everything away from him.  Now sober for two years, Williams describes hoping for an opportunity.  Here is the video to refresh your memory:


Now there are plenty of people looking to give him work - from the Cleveland Cavaliers to MTV and the NFL.  Here are just a few of the offerings:

  •    The Cleveland Cavaliers: A representative of the Cavs called into "The Morning Zoo" on WNCI, a local Ohio station, this morning to offer Williams a full-time voiceover job and a house.
  • The NFL: No offer has been made yet, but a director of post-production from the NFL told The Columbus Dispatch, "My boss said to me: 'If you don't get him hired, you're fired.' ... I can't make any guarantees, but I'd love to get him some work."
  • The Ohio Credit Union League: Also on WNCI this morning, Williams was offered a $10,000 opportunity to do voiceover work for the Ohio Credit Union League, pending a background check.
  • MTV: Someone claiming to be from MTV called into "The Morning Zoo" to say that they'd love to work with Williams.
  • ESPN: According to WNCI, ESPN has expressed interest in Williams, too.
  • Radio: A Pennsylvania radio station is apparently interested in Williams.
  • Giving back: The television station WBNS-TV wants to use Williams as a narrator for One Day To End Homelessness, a telethon planned for Jan. 31.
It just goes to show the power of social media and the Internet.  Good luck to Mr. Williams!
