(NECN) - Last year, millions watched a YouTube video that featured a homeless man with a "golden voice".

He was a former radio talent who fell on hard times, struggling with drugs and poverty.

The video quickly launched Ted to instant fame, booking voice-over deals for commercials. But, just as quickly as the fame came, he suffered a relapse, and checked into a rehabilitation center.

Ted is now working on a new project, working as the official voice of NECN. He sat down with Steve Aveson to talk about his journey. Watch the attached video for more.
