Ted Williams: Homeless Man Gets Offer from Cavs
Ted Williams, Homeless Man with Amazing Radio Voice, Gets Cleveland Cavaliers Offer
Ted Williams, whose "golden radio voice" shot him to internet fame, has received a job offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers, who want him to do voiceover work for the team. The Cavs offer also includes a place to live.
Ted Williams is a 71-year-old former alcoholic and drug addict who trained as a radio anouncer before his substance-abuse problems left him homeless. While drug- and alcohol-free, Williams was still living on the streets when a video from The Columbus Disptach shot him to overnight fame.
"The Cleveland Cavaliers just offered me a full-time job and a house! A house! A house!," repeated a stunned Williams, 71, on local radio station WNCI.
The Ohio Credit Union League has also offered Williams $10,000 for his voice, says The Columbus Dispatch – whose videographer created the original video.
