From the ABC News Obituary:

The “most listened to man” in broadcasting passed away Saturday. After more than seven decades on the air, venerable radioman Paul Harvey’s folksy speech and plain talk are no more. Radio legend passes away at 90. Harvey died at the age of 90 at a hospital near his winter home in Phoenix.

This feature takes a short look at the life and career of Paul Harvey.  Guests include Bruce DuMont (Founder, President and CEO of the Museum of Broadcast Communications), Wes Bleed (News Director at WGN Radio) and Jim Warren (First host and Executive Producer of Prime Time America, Moody Radio; Music Director at Calvary Memorial Church when the Harvey’s attended).

  1. Great work, Paul! Thanks for tackling this tribute.

    • It is encouraging to hear from you. I remember working on a number of tributes with Jim while working for PTA as both engineer and producer. Now THOSE were tributes…

  2. Hi Paul! This was a very fitting to tribute to Mr. Harvey…you filled in details that won’t be heard anywhere else! This is a piece to be proud of, Paul!

    • I appreciate your thoughtful comments. It was enjoyable to get some stories out there that no one else was talking about. It was great to hear Jim again on Moody Radio.

  3. Like the special features on a DVD, this tribute made the real Paul Harvey come alive. Good work and…Good Day!
