Paul Harvey - 1918-2009 - Died, at 90, Surrounded by Family

"Legendary broadcaster Paul Harvey dies"
CNN (March 1, 2009)

"(CNN) -- Paul Harvey, the legendary radio host whose career sharing 'the rest of the story' with listeners spanned more than 70 years, has died, according to ABC Radio Networks.

"He was 90.

"Harvey died at a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, where he kept a winter home, said Louis Adams, a spokesman for the networks. He was surrounded by family members when he died, Adams said.

"Known for his deliberate delivery and pregnant pauses, Harvey's broadcasts were heard on more than 1,200 radio stations and 400 Armed Forces networks and his commentaries appeared in 300 newspapers, according to his Web site...."

My children don't remember his broadcasts, but I do. He had a distinctive style, generally upbeat attitude, and a sign-off line that I remember well:

'This is Paul Harvey: Good day!'
