Ted Williams: a golden radio voice January 6, 2011

Ted Williams was homeless, panhandling on the side of an Interstate freeway ramp in Columbus, Ohio, carrying a sign saying he’d fallen on hard times but has a God-given gift of voice.

He was spotted by a reporter and made the subject of a video that’s been tearing up the Internet, with almost 3 million hits on YouTube. Now, possible job opportunities are coming his way.

The New York Post quotes Williams as exclaiming on local radio station WNCI, “The Cleveland Cavaliers just offered me a full-time job and a house! A house! A house!”

His sign was no lie — he indeed has a golden broadcast voice — as you’ll hear in the video below, in which Williams wells up as he tells “Early Show” co-anchors Erica Hill and Chris Wragge about his road back – a road starting, first and foremost, with a reunion with his 92-year old mother, and his continuing unshakable belief in God, despite all his hard times.

He told Wragge and Hill, “I’m gonna be going to New York, hopefully this afternoon… I apologize. I’m getting a little emotional. I haven’t seen my mom in a great deal of time. She doesn’t believe (what’s been happening to me). She’s 92. She lives in Brooklyn. I was born and raised in Brooklyn. … One of my biggest prayers that I sent out was that she would live long enough for me to see me rebound or whatever, and I guess God kept her around and kept my pipes around to maybe just have one more shot that I would be able to say, ‘Mom, I did do it before,’ — I might pass away before her or whatever, but my dad didn’t get a chance to see this. But God is good.”
