And with those words, ABC News legend, Paul Harvey, begins another broadcast.

Paul Harvey is the most well-known newsman in the world. He established the gold standard for news and commentary over 50 years ago. Today the legendary broadcaster is still going strong with his morning and noon News & Comment and his tantalizing broadcast, The Rest of the Story.

Paul Harvey has passed away.

From wiki

Paul Harvey Aurandt (September 4, 1918 – February 28, 2009), better known as Paul Harvey, was an American radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks. He broadcasted News and Comment on weekday mornings and mid-days, and at noon on Saturdays, as well as his famous The Rest of the Story segments. His listening audience was estimated at 22 million people a week. Harvey liked to say he was raised in radio newsrooms.[1]

The most noticeable features of Harvey’s idiosyncratic delivery was his dramatic pauses, quirky intonations and his folksiness. A large part of his success stemmed from the seamlessness with which he segued from his monologue into reading commercial messages. He explained his enthusiastic support of his sponsors as such: “I am fiercely loyal to those willing to put their money where my mouth is.”[citation needed]

On Sept. 12, 2008, after the death of George Putnam, Harvey became the oldest syndicated radio personality in America.[citation needed]

On Feb. 28, 2009, Paul Harvey, America’s oldest radio personality died at the age of 90.

  1. Well, dang.
    God Bless Paul Harvey, and all his family.
    I’ve never known a world without him, until now, and was informed so well by him, in his short “rest of the story” segments.
    He was a giant, and will be missed.

  2. Yes,
    he will be greatly missed

  3. Mr. Harvey…..Good Day…. I learned a lot listening to you.

  4. I loved “And now you know……the rest of the story!”

    Indeed, there is no one to compare.
