The last few days a video has been going around the Internet of a homeless man named Ted Williams who has a great announcer’s voice. USA Today is now reporting that the man has been offered a job by the Cleveland Cavaliers and NFL Films. Meanwhile, the talk show hosts are trying to get him on their shows. Hopefully things will work out for Williams, who has training in announcing but got sidetracked by alcoholism and drugs.
More than six million people have viewed the video of Mr. Williams after it was posted on YouTube Monday. In case you have not seen it yet, here is the Internet video that may change a man’s life for the better. And you thought YouTube was just for funny kittens. [October 2013 Update: The original video appears to be no longer available, so below is a story about Williams that includes the original video.]
Update for Thursday, Jan. 6: Today, CNN has an interesting story about the man who made the video of Ted Williams, Doral Chenoweth III, and what made him stop to make the video. According to the story, Chenoweth is an interesting person, who actually had the video for five weeks before posting it. Also, as noted in a comment, Ted Williams has now appeared on the Today Show.
