It’s nice when the Internet is used for the good of mankind, and not just Farmville.
A homeless man panhandling on a freeway exit off I-71 in Ohio become an instant Internet sensation after a man in a passing car stopped and videotaped him, capturing his silver tongue radio announcer voice, and then putting this remarkable video online for the world see. Now, he’s fielding multiple job offers, jet setting off to New York, and appearing on national morning shows.
See the amazing and heartwarming video of Ted Williams below!
His name is Ted Williams, and he’s an ex-radio announcer who fell on hard times.
“I have a god given gift of voice. I’m an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times. Please! Any help will be gratefully appreciated. Thank you and God bless. Happy holidays,” reads Williams’ roadside sign for help.
After this amazing video went viral, Ted Williams was approached by more than a few morning shows for appearances.
Now, he’s flying off to New York to visit his 92-year-old mother who lives in Brooklyn. What a way to start the year. The world needs happy stories like this.
Good luck, Ted!
