CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Remember "Golden Voice" Ted Williams?

It's been more than a year since he was discovered near a Columbus highway. He was homeless at the time, looking for a break.

He got one ... and so much more.

Williams caught the attention of radio stations and sports teams across the country. At one point, Williams told Fox 8 News he was seriously considering taking a job with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The offers came in quickly but soon became too overwhelming for the talented voice who was plucked from obscurity and thrust into the national spotlight, seemingly overnight.

Williams battled drugs and alcohol, completing two stints in rehab.

Now, Golden Voice says he's on the right track.

Williams was back on the Fox 8 airwaves Thursday to talk about his new book, which, in part, chronicles his life as a homeless man.

He's also back to work, doing voice-overs for a TV station in New England, while keeping his gig with Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.

Williams says his relationship with his family -- which was strained during his struggles with addiction -- is improving, especially with his mother.

"A Golden Voice: How Faith, Hard Work, and Humility Brought Me from the Streets to Salvation" is online in bookstores now.
