Homeless man's radio voice is a hit

A 53-year-old homeless man from Columbus in Ohio has been receiving offers of radio work after being talent-spotted by a local newspaper reporter while asking for money by a roadside.

Footage of Ted Williams demonstrating his voice-over skills was posted online by The Columbus Dispatch newspaper.

After a life of drug and alcohol addiction and living on the streets, he has accepted a two-year contract as an announcer.
