Don Pardo dead at 96: TV and radio favorite was 'Saturday Night Live' announcer for 4 decades

Pardo's booming baritone voice was part of game shows, newscasts and TV commercials for more than 60 years. In later years, he recorded his famous ‘SNL’ introductions from his home in Arizona, and he continued at the show through the end of last season, when he performed the introductions on the finale in May.

Thanks to “Saturday Night Live” and approximately four zillion other programs and commercials, Don Pardo may have had the most cherished voice in television history.
