MSNBC Hires Homeless Man With 'Golden Voice' For Voiceovers

MSNBC has hired Ted Williams, the homeless Ohio man we featured earlier this week, with a booming radio voice.

The network has announced that Williams will be recording voiceovers for their 'Lean Forward' campaign, which aims to take a swipe at the nation's strident and divisive political culture with lines like, "Celebrate the best ideas, no matter where they come from," and "One nation, in progress."

"To lean forward is to think bigger, listen closer, fight smarter, and act faster," says one ad. "To celebrate the best ideas, no matter where they come from."

MSNBC says that Williams' story "embodies the very same American ideals that the Lean Forward campaign seeks to highlight."

The spots with the voiceovers will begin airing soon but the man also showed off his talents on the 'Today' show.
