He Really does!!!

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

Maybe there's soon to be some reality show called America's Got Voice, American Radio Voice Idol, So You Think You Can Speak or something.

Now that he's on youtube, he'll soon be rubbing elbows with the likes of stars such as Antoine Dodson.

On one of the morning shows they showed this and said some radio station had him on but didn't have a job for him. There are people that are trying to get him employment. He said that he'd come upon hard times and has been drug and alcohol free for two years.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Well, I hope someone has a job for him. To think of all the crappy radio voices you hear and then this guy's homeless?

Homeless man with radio voice has offer

ESPN.com news services

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have offered a job to a homeless Ohio man with a golden radio voice.

Ted Williams, whose deep baritone and plight have made him an online video sensation, was contacted Wednesday by the Cavs.

Team spokesman Tad Carper said details are still being worked out on a possible position for Williams.

Carper said any job could include working at Quicken Loans Arena, the NBA team's downtown arena. It is not yet known if Williams has accepted the team's offer.

Williams' compelling tale also has drawn interest from NFL Films, which has chronicled pro football for nearly 50 years and wants to contact Williams.

"It's that voice," said Kevin McLoughlin, director of post-production films for the NFL told The Associated Press. "When I heard him tell his story, I said, 'That's what we do. This guy can tell a story.' Somehow, some way, I need to get a demo with him."

"The man deserves a second chance," said McLoughlin, who has not yet been able to contact Williams.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that video of Williams posted this week on its website has commanded millions of views and drawn inquiries from numerous media entities and a talent agency.

In the clip, Williams stands near a Columbus highway ramp demonstrating his smooth, deep speaking voice. He holds a sign that asks motorists for help and says, "I'm an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times."

Williams, who told the Dispatch he sometimes lives in a camp behind a gas station, says he had trouble with drugs and alcohol but is two years' sober.

"I'm trying hard to get it back," he told the newspaper.

A Dispatch videographer by chance decided to film Williams, who sometimes panhandles off Interstate 71.

"We run into these guys at the exit ramps and we pretty much ignore them," the videographer, Doral Chenoweth III, said on the Dispatch website. "This guy was using his talent."

On the Dispatch's video clip, Williams said he was 14 and on a field trip when he became fascinated by the world of radio after talking with an announcer.

"He said to me: 'Radio is defined [as] theater of mind,' " Williams said on the video. "I can't be an actor; I can't be an on-air [television] personality. The voice became something of a development."

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

The video is out of sync, but it's good to hear from him. He cut his tresses.
