Default Don Pardo dead at 96

NEW YORK (AP) Few would recognize his face, but most would know his voice: that booming baritone that for nearly four decades would introduce the lineups on "Saturday Night Live."


Don Pardo, the durable television and radio announcer whose resonant voice-over style was widely imitated and became the standard in the field, died Monday in Arizona at the age of 96.

He was a staple at NBC. He and Bob Hope had the only lifetime contracts given by the network!

Really going to miss that intro to SNL. Rest in Peace, Mr Pardo!

Default Re: Don Pardo dead at 96

96 years is a hell of a run. His voice is a integral part of the history of television...if not society as a whole...if not America itself.

You could here him say almost anything and immediately know who it was.

Truly a hall of famer!
