Ted Williams: Radio, NFL Films to come
The Brooklyn, New York-born Williams studied radio before falling on hard times. Now, a $15,000 donation and a temporary gig at a Cleveland radio station have come his way.
But that’s not all.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly offered him a job, presumably for voiceover work, and the team at NFL Films has contacted him about voicing for them.
