Ted Williams, the (Not for Long) Homeless Man with the Radio Voice, on The Today Show

Ted Williams, the homeless man with the golden-age radio voice, has enjoyed a remarkable ascent: On Tuesday, a video of him demonstrating his talent by a highway exit exploded across the Internet, racking up more than 4 million YouTube views in 24 hours; on Wednesday, he excitedly revealed that he was being pursued by the Cleveland Cavaliers for an announcer gig, and that they’d offered him a house to live in; today, Williams finds himself on The Today Show.

The interview is long, but worth watching. Williams shares more about his past and the religious faith that he says brought him out of his decline intro drug use and alcoholism, makes the Cleveland joke everyone was afraid to make (“they said they’re going to give me LeBron’s old house”), and reveals that Kraft asked him to audition to be the voice announcing their macaroni and cheese.
