CLOSE A year ago, Ted Williams became an overnight sensation. The feel-good story of 2011, Williams was discovered on an Ohio highway when a videographer recorded the former radio personality who had succumbed to alcoholism and become homeless. Within a matter of two weeks, Williams was cleaned up, had secured jobs and was on seemingly every TV show in the country. But the sudden return to success became its own problem and after a few faltering TV appearances, Williams checked into rehab.

Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. With his public profile lowered, Williams began the battle for sobriety, checking in and out of rehab and then finally sticking to it. He’s now been clean for over a year and he’s releasing a new book “A Golden Voice: How Faith, Hard Work, and Humility Brought Me from the Streets to Salvation.”

It’s compelling stuff. Williams documents how he was a homeless drug addict for more than 20 years, after a successful radio career in Columbus, OH. He details the degradation and self-hatred that comes along with such a fall and he doesn’t spare himself. His story is one for anyone in despair, anyone who wants to give up or anyone who thinks that life has passed them by because with one lucky moment, Ted Williams regained his life.
