(Newser) – The viral video of the day has a great ending. A Columbus Dispatch videographer interviewed a 53-year-old homeless man named Ted Williams whose sign asking for money promised that he had a "God-given gift of voice." (Not as a singer, but a radio pitchman.) The resulting YouTube smash has brought in scores of job offers for Williams, who says he used to work in radio until he ran into trouble with booze and drugs. He says he's been clean for two years. AOL News rounds up his job offers here, and Williams also is racking up national media appearances.
