Paul Harvey Dies at 90

KSCB News - March 1, 2009 12:00 am

ABC Radio Networks says broadcasting pioneer Paul

Harvey has died at the age of 90.

Network spokesman Louis Adams says Harvey died Saturday at his

winter home in Phoenix, surrounded by family. No cause of death was

immediately available.

Harvey, who was born in Tulsa, Okla., was a news commentator and

talk-radio pioneer whose staccato style made him one of the

nation’s most familiar voices.

He was forced off the air in 2001 because a virus weakened a

vocal cord. But he returned to work in Chicago and was still active

as he passed his 90th birthday.

Known for his resonant voice and trademark delivery of “The

Rest of the Story,” Harvey had been heard nationally since 1951,

when he began his “News and Comment” for ABC Radio Networks.

Paul Harvey has been a mainstay on KSCB for many years
