Paul Harvey dies



I just heard on the news that legendary radio personality Paul Harvey passed away today. He began his radio career in 1933 and became widely successful in 1951 when his Chicago radio show went national. He was famous for beginning his programs with "Hello Americans, I'm Paul Harvey. You know what the news is, in a minute, you're going to hear ... the rest of the story," and ending them with "Paul Harvey ... Good day." He was 90.

I too heard that news this morning. He was a great story teller and he will have impossible shoes to fill.

Yep, growing up in the mid-west, Paul Harvey was the god of AM radio.

I think the best thing was that he stayed true to his biases throughout - commercial pressure never changed his views.

He will be missed.
