NPR Newscaster Carl Kasell Dies At 84, After A Lifelong Career On-Air

quote [ Kasell brought unflappable authority to the news, but he also had a lively sense of humor, revealed late in his career when he became the judge and scorekeeper for Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! ]

Calm the fuck down, 2018!

Carl was a master, in the style of Murrow, Ace, Terkel and Siegel. He made it his job to deliver the news as clearly as possible using only his voice, and he did it extraordinarily well. No graphics, no gimmicks, no sound effects or terrible jokes (at least, until he joined the quiz show, where it was appropriate). I'll miss him.
