Since his viral video has “got the internet goin’ nuts”, Ted Williams has been offered a plethora of voice-over and announcing gigs.
Now that Williams’ voice has been heard, he’s making appearances — he was on Ohio radio this morning, and he’ll be on NBC’s “Today Show” on Thursday — and the job prospects seem to be pouring in. Here are a few of the new possible opportunities for Williams.
The Cleveland Cavaliers: A representative of the Cavs called into “The Morning Zoo” on WNCI, a local Ohio station, this morning to offer Williams a full-time voice-over job and a house.
The NFL: No offer has been made yet, but a director of post-production from the NFL told The Columbus Dispatch, “My boss said to me: ‘If you don’t get him hired, you’re fired.’ … I can’t make any guarantees, but I’d love to get him some work.”
The Ohio Credit Union League: Also on WNCI this morning, Williams was offered a $10,000 opportunity to do voice-over work for the Ohio Credit Union League, pending a background check.
MTV: Someone claiming to be from MTV called into “The Morning Zoo” to say that they’d love to work with Williams.
ESPN: According to WNCI, ESPN has expressed interest in Williams, too.
Radio: A Pennsylvania radio station is apparently interested in Williams.
Giving back: The television station WBNS-TV wants to use Williams as a narrator for One Day To End Homelessness, a telethon planned for Jan. 31.
There’s a lot of bullsh*t on the internet, but we can definitely say that this one of the benefits. Being able to reach an entire nation of people through viral videos and changing lives with technology.
