An icon passed away today.  Valley resident Paul Harvey was one of the most well-known radio personalities in the history of radio.  His “News & Comment” and “Rest of the Story” pieces were among the most listened to radio broadcasts ever to hit the airwaves.  I grew up listening to Paul Harvey and his voice has been a familiar sound throughout my life.  His career of nearly seven decades is one that will be unmatched.  The only person who may last longer on the radio, is Dodger announcer Vin Scully.

Paul Harvey was the essence of American life, which is why he connected to so many people.  He was straight-forward, honest and funny.  He was “fair and balanced” decades before the term became famous.  He will be sorely missed. Paul Harvey, dead at the age of 90. RIP.
