Ted Williams, whose deep baritone and plight have made him an online video sensation, was contacted on Wednesday by the Cavs. Team spokesman Tad Carper says details are still being worked out on the possible position, which could include Williams working in Quicken Loans Arena.
The Columbus Dispatch reports video of Williams posted this week on the newspaper’s website has commanded millions of views.
In the clip, Williams stands near a Columbus highway ramp demonstrating his smooth, deep speaking voice. He holds a sign that asks motorists for help and says, “I’m an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times.”
Williams says he had trouble with drugs and alcohol and is now two years sober.
