Paul Harvey Aurandt (September 4, 1918 - February 28, 2009), better known as Paul Harvey, was an American radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks. He broadcasted News and Comment on weekday mornings and mid-days, and at noon on Saturdays, as well as his famous The Rest of the Story segments. His listening audience was estimated at 22 million people a week. Harvey liked to say he was raised in radio newsrooms.
The most noticeable features of Harvey's idiosyncratic delivery was his dramatic pauses, quirky intonations and his folksiness. A large part of his success stemmed from the seamlessness with which he segued from his monologue into reading commercial messages. He explained his enthusiastic support of his sponsors as such: "I am fiercely loyal to those willing to put their money where my mouth is."
On Sept. 12, 2008, after the death of George Putnam, Harvey became the oldest syndicated radio personality in America.
On Feb. 28, 2009, Paul Harvey, America's oldest radio personality died at the age of 90.
RIP Mr. Harvey

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
My first full time job was in a ceramic mold factory. The old guy who ran the pump room always had to listen to Mr. Harvey. We'd change the radio for him and be quiet every day during the broadcast. Fond memories.
One of the local country sta had Paul on years ago I loved "The Rest Of The Story" never missed a day. He had a way of telling a story that just captivated you.I was in my late teens and a lot of my buddys ribbed me but I always had it on.
