COLUMBUS, Ohio — Five years after a homeless man’s silky voice won him Internet fame, he’s on the air again at the same Ohio radio station where he began his career before addiction pushed him to the streets.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the new weekday radio program on WVKO-AM is the first steady employment Ted Williams has had since 1993.

Williams became an online sensation after The Dispatch featured the 58-year-old’s golden voice in a video.

Williams tells the newspaper he’s had ups and downs in the years since the video was published. But he says he’s just trying to move forward living with his daughter and his longtime girlfriend.
