Redditors Help Homeless Man With Amazing Radio Announcer Voice Get Back on His Feet
Earlier this week, a video of a homeless man in Columbus, Ohio named Ted Williams hit the internet. Upon first glance, he looks like your average dude holding up a sign at the side of the road -- but anyone who takes a minute to talk to him will realize that he has an out-of-control amazing voice.
Like, he could do every radio spot ever. He should be running the voiceover game, not performing for YouTube and a couple of bucks.
After seeing the video, Redditors in the Columbus area got to work trying to find ways to help Ted get back on his feet using his amazing talents.
The result: less than 8 hours after the call to action was posted on Reddit, Ted has been scheduled to appear on Columbus' The Morning Zoo radio show. What's even better, other Redditors have offered their services to help jumpstart his career, including money donations (over $1,000 so far), a cell phone, a business suit, and a website. How awesome is that?
For Urlbots who want to tune in, he'll be with Columbus's Dave and Jimmy on several radio stations (check "Listen Live") on Wednesday, January 5th at 7:15am EST and you can listen online.
Way to go, Ted! We're rooting for you!
Update: Ted has gotten at least ten gig offers in the past 24 hours for both TV and radio work. Most in the US and some international. So exciting!
