Don Pardo, Longtime Saturday Night Live Announcer, Dead at 96
Veteran television and radio announcer Dominick “Don” Pardo, best known as the voice of Saturday Night Live, has died, CBS Radio reports. He was 96.
Pardo retired from NBC in 2004, but continued to provide the introductions for SNL — most recently, pre-recording them from his home in Arizona. He had only missed one season of SNL — the show’s seventh — giving him a longer tenure than even Lorne Michaels (who stepped away for five seasons).
Pardo also supplied his voice to game shows The Price Is Right, Jackpot and Jeopardy!
