Ted Williams has a familiar face and voice, having played roles in movies, TV, and on stage for more than 30 years. He also has hosted many radio shows in California and beyond. Ted started his career as a touring stage actor. A part as a DJ led him to radio stations around San Jose, Ventura, and LA. It was a natural fit for Ted's low voice and crazy personality. Ted then became a TV news anchor and acted in many commercials. In 1988, Ted helped develop a new radio format called K-LOVE that went on the air in Santa Rosa. He continued radio, T,V and film parts, appearing in Hart to Hart, Nowhere to Run, A Walk in the Clouds and many more.
After the events of 9/11, Ted trained in emergency preparedness. He changed careers and became a paramedic on an ambulance and in emergency rooms.
Now Ted has come full circle; he's back on the air at KZST 100.1 FM in Sonoma County on the weekends and continues to do radio and TV commercials. He also owns a CPR/first aid training company, Rescue Ready, and is on faculty at Santa Rosa JC.
