Ever wonder what happened to Ted Williams, the homeless man with the “Golden Voice” after he was swept by the viral limelight in youtube?
It’s been just over a year since then where he was featured as the then-homeless Columbus, Ohio man who presented his pitch-perfect, classic radio voice to the world.
Entertainment Tonight caught up with him and how his life has dramatically changed so far and what he felt about it.
In the video above, Ted shows his spacious house that he shares with his girfirend and sober living coach. He was still in a state of disbelief when he said “A year ago today I was living in tents, under bridges, smoking crack, doing all the wild things—now this is where I live. I have a fireplace.”
He also has a walk-in closet that doubles as a recording booth, where he records his spots for his job as the official voice of the New England Cable News.
The past year has been a busy one; in addition to going to rehab twice, Williams has been working with Entertainment Tonight (whose producers also helped him with achieving sobriety), landed a voice over spot in a Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese commercial last year, and is set to release a book chronicling his story this May.
“What a difference a year makes,” he said. “It’s a ‘hallelujah’ moment every day I wake up.”
Watch this video right here that made him the star he is now today.
“Radio is defined, the theater of mind” Ted William.
