He was once known as the most listened to man in radio and now his voice is silenced. Paul Harvey passed away today at the age of 90 at a hospital near his winter home in Phoenix, Arizona. Harvey’s death comes 9 months after the death of his wife and business partner, Lynne Cooper Harvey according to ABC News.
He began his more than 70 years on the air by helping out at a local radio station when he was a teenager. Harvey’s claim to fame, however, were the programs “News & Comment” and “Rest of the Story” which millions of Americans were able to hear on 1350 commercial stations and 400 Armed Forces Radio Service stations. He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1990.
“…and now YOU know the Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrest of the Story!”
