Don Pardo Dead -  'Saturday Night Live' Announcer Dies at 96

Don Pardo, the voice of Saturday Night Live, has died at the age of 96.

The Saturday Night Live announcer’s daughter Paula confirmed his death to CBS Radio. The cause of Don‘s death is currently unknown.

In March 2013, Don broke his hip and was forced to miss two episodes of the SNL season, but he was back to introducing the cast by September.

Don was the announcer for Saturday Night Live for 38 seasons and worked for NBC for almost 70 years, since the 1940s.

We send out our thoughts and condolences to Don‘s family during this difficult time.
