Paul Harvey's singular voice falls silent

If you've not heard one of Paul Harvey's commentaries, then you've never listened to radio. A real pioneer who bridged the "old" radio days and the new. He will be missed.

Paul Harvey's singular voice falls silent -
"Paul Harvey was radio's original Prairie Home Companion.

The legendary commentator, 90, who died Saturday in Phoenix (no cause of death was released), was known for his homespun take on the day's events, which reached 18 million listeners a day on the ABC Radio Networks. Harvey's 15-minute monologues, delivered with frank but rhythmic drama, were punctuated by a signature signoff: 'This is Paul Harvey. ... Good day.'"
