Homeless Man Becomes Viral Video Star

He hopes to be the next big radio star. And he's definitely got the voice for it.


Ted Williams hopes to become the next big radio announcer. He was introduced to the radio industry when he was 14 and was inspired by a local radio announcer on a school field trip. Now that he's two years sober, he hopes that his dream will finally come true.

Hosts of the Columbus, Ohio, radio show Dave and Jimmy tracked down Williams -- a Brooklyn, N.Y., native -- on the highway to hear his booming radio voice. Listen to it here. Amazing.

Update at 3:35 p.m.: Williams has received a job offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
