*Ted Williams, the former homeless man and radio announcer dubbed “the man with the golden voice,” has reason to celebrate the New Year.
Williams, who for years struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, was discovered as he begged for change in traffic in Columbus, Ohio. He has now accepted a job offer as the voice of New England Cable News (NECN), according to ET online.
Williams received a shower of job offers after a YouTube video featuring his resonant voice went viral last year. But the father of nine said it was “too much, too soon.” After undergoing drug and alcohol counseling, it seems Williams is back on track with the help of his girlfriend and sober living coach.
And that’s not all—Williams has started a charitable foundation, finished a book proposal and is shopping a reality show called “Second Chance at Life.”
