Homeless Man With Great Voice Looks For Voiceover Job

A man who once dreamed of going into radio let drugs and alcohol alter the course of his life. Now, he’s clean, but homeless, and looking for a job in Columbus Ohio:


One of the videos on YouTube has more than 4,000,000 views, and updates are showing that job offers are pouring in.

MyFox dfw reports:

A homeless man with a polished broadcasting voice was showcasing his unexpected talent on a radio station in Columbus, Ohio, Wednesday morning — with a possible job offer as a result.

Ted Williams, 71 (I’m questioning that!) — who begs with a sign saying he has a God-given gift of a great voice — became an internet hit after a reporter from the Columbus Dispatch filmed him demonstrating his skill.


Media outlets have already begun expressing an interest in Williams’ offer, including WNCI’s morning radio show Dave and Jimmy, who organized a Wednesday morning interview slot for the burgeoning internet star.

Announcing the interview on their Facebook page, Dave and Jimmy wrote, “The homeless man with the awesome voice will be in our studio at 7:15am tomorrow [Wednesday]. We’re going to find some way to help this guy!”

According to Dave and Jimmy’s latest FB post, the interview went well:

Today was the most gratifying show we’ve ever done.

I’m very happy for Williams – I think he’s going to be set for life.

After all, everyone deserves a second chance.

  1. TSA stopped Ted Williams from getting on his flight from Columbus to NYC. No appearance on “The Today Show” on Thursday morning. No visit to 92 year-old Mom in Brooklyn. See, he didn’t have ‘proper ID’, said the TSA. So Ted spent today at the Columbus Courthouse, trying to figure out how to get a copy of his birth certificate. Obviously he did have some form of ID, but the TSA wasn’t satisfied with it. The man has been homeless for four years. OK, America – What are we going to do about this out-of-control phony security dance? These blockheads, however, are typical of our society. Follow the little rule book, and throw common sense out the window. Wrong. No little rule book takes away YOUR OBLIGATION TO THINK FOR YOURSELF. There are times you have to make an exception. That’s “the exception that proves the rule”. It’s like the traffic cop giving the mother of the little girl in a coma in Las Vegas a ‘jaywalking ticket’ – gave it to her right in the hospital. Or the policeman giving a ticket to the Dad who raced to the hospital while his wife’s water broke in the car on the way to the hospital in New Hampshire. RETRAIN EVERYBODY — OR FIRE THEM.
