January 6, 2011 by USA Post
Man With Golden Voice, Ted Williams, the homeless man from Ohio with the baritone voice of butter, has been inundated with job offers – and was held today in New York with his mother 90 years after 20 years.
“Mom, Mom. Mama, “says Williams, he ran to her, the newspaper reported.
The Columbus Dispatch, which found Williams on a video that has raced around the world, was on hand for the meeting with CBS and NBC.
“My prodigal son has finally come home,” said Julia Williams as the two embraced, according to The Dispatch.
Earlier, Williams had the chance to voice the intro for the show today.
“It’s phenomenal, unbelievable,” he told Matt Lauer.
World Williams returned after a videographer for the Columbus Dispatch found the onetime radio announcer begging for change and live in a tent along a highway in Ohio.

This morning, Williams was in New York appearing on the Today Show and jobs into service from a variety of businesses, including the basketball team of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kraft.
Williams, 51, said he fell on hard times because of drugs and alcohol, but has been sober for two years.
