What was this for Roth/GW?  He is without disguise in the photos which was very odd in publications bs k in that time period.

Looks good.

I think you stumbled on something his 'agent' may have had on file

I found it odd with him without disguise and having his phone number available mYbe for bookings?

That's exactly what that is. He was looking for work outside of wrestling. And he's showing he has 'TV experience'.

Nice find

Wiz had at least two articles, one in the Weston magazine's where he talked of his dual identity as Abdullah Farouk, and another in an early 80s edition of Wrestling's Main Event which covered his array of earlier personas including J. Wellington Radcliffe and Mr. Kleen. In some ways it seems Roth was portrayed as someone who could play it impartially such as his days behind the announcing desk, or as outlandish as needed with Wiz garb in tow.

I wonder if the phone number was to the Wiz's house. It's a Miami number and he lived there. He also had a lot of free time. He went to TV and MSG shows. I think he had some office duties he either performed from home or from going to the WWWF offices from time to time. He was an experienced broadcaster. Perhaps he was looking for work as a voiceover guy, commercial pitchman, or local TV host in his Ernie Roth persona to get extra money and fill in the down time.
