Harvey, Paul (b. Paul Harvey Aurandt)

(1918–  ) radio journalist; born in Tulsa, Okla. Hired as a radio announcer while still in high school, he worked in various Midwestern stations until he began his daily newscasts in Chicago in 1944. His syndicated commentaries were aired nationally beginning in 1951. Descended from Baptist preachers, he designed his colorful broadcasts, Paul Harvey News and The Rest of the Story, to reach into the heartland. His distinctive delivery style consisted of dramatic pauses and inflections; he is also known for his somewhat more dubious practice of making his commercials and endorsements blend with the news.
