Update: Ted Williams & Legality Issues

5 January 2011 at 9:42 pm (News, WTF!?) (, , , , )


The ‘Golden Radio Voice’ guy — who went from homeless to overnight Internet sensation — is struggling to board a flight to NYC because he doesn’t have ID … according to his rep (yep, he’s got one now).

Ted Williams’ peeps tell us Ted is currently at the courthouse in Columbus, OH trying to get a copy of his birth certificate.

Ted is supposed to be in New York tomorrow for an interview on “Today” — but since he’s been homeless for more than four years he doesn’t have ID — so he’s been unable to board a flight.

It’s the first bad news Williams has had in 24 hours. He’s gotten a job offer, a home offer, and a free trip home to visit his mom — all because of the YouTube clip that went viral.

Ted’s rep says having to reestablish identity is a common problem for the homeless. Let’s hope someone has a plan B to get Ted to NYC. [SOURCE]

Homeless Man Offered A Job By the Cleveland Cavs

5 January 2011 at 2:57 pm (Entertainment, Life, News, Raves, Sports, Televison) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )


I’m a bit late on this but this is a brief interview with a man claiming to have a God-given voice for radio and it’s not just a claim … it’s a FACT. His name is Ted Williams, he is currently homeless. Here he explains his life story briefly in just under a minute.

The video on YouTube has garnered over 4 million views in just over 24 hours. Talk about viral! Amazing!

Since the video made its way around the world, I’m happy to report that Ted has received an offer of not just a full-time job but also a mortgage on a home by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The story is below:

Ted Williams, a homeless man who is the subject of viral video that has captivated the internet at large, has been offered a full-time job and a mortgage on a home by Quicken Loans Arena and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A woman named Tracy, representing Quicken Loans and the Cavaliers, called WNCI 97.9 on Wednesday morning and made the offer. CNBC’s Darren Rovell confirmed the authenticity of the offer on Twitter. Williams was inundated with offers throughout his appearance, so there is no word whether the offer has been accepted or signed at this point.

Williams story became a viral sensation on Tuesday with the original YouTube clip reaching more than four million views in 24 hours. He was found by a Columbus Dispatch reporter on the side of the road, using his incredible voice to collect money on the street. You can watch the original clip here.

The Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena are offering voiceover work in radio and television along with a new website launch that will require voiceover work from Williams.

The Cavaliers offer does not figure to be the last one that Williams receives. According to Rovell on Twitter, NFL Films is looking to contact the man dubbed the “Homeless D.J.” about work. Williams is also sorting through numerous opportunities for other appearance on national TV and radio, which could result in further offers in the days to come. [Source]

I can only imagine if this all works out a movie on this mans’ life will soon follow. I love GOOD news like this. It lifts my spirits and reiterates that there are still good and deserving people in this world. God bless him.
