Ted Williams is a familiar face and voice to television, film, and radio. For over 30 years, Ted has played roles in movies, TV shows, and stage productions. And, for many of those years hosting radio shows throughout California and beyond.
Ted started his entertainment career as a touring stage actor, logging more than 750 performances and 95 different roles. One of the parts was life changing, as a disc jockey. It was a natural fit for Ted's already low voice and crazy personality. So, at 21 years old, it was off the road and on to radio stations around San Jose, Ventura, and Los Angeles. After a couple of years, Ted was offered a TV news anchor position, which led to parts as an actor in numerous commercials.
In 1988, Ted came to the San Francisco Bay area where he continued radio, TV, and film parts, appearing in Hart to Hart, Nowhere to Run, A Walk In The Clouds, Shadow of a Doubt, and many more.
In 1992, Ted came to KZST, and then helped begin KJZY. However, 9 years later, after the events of 9/11, Ted decided to get trained in emergency preparedness. It was another life changing decision that pulled his interest from entertainment to emergency medicine. Ted changed careers to help others as a Paramedic on a 911 ambulance and hospital Emergency Rooms.
But, Ted came back to radio a few years later, hosting weekend mornings on KZST. He is now the News and Public Affairs Director for all five stations of Santa Rosa's Redwood Empire Stereocasters.
