Radio personality Paul Harvey has been on the air a long time. What can you tell me about him?

—Trudy T., Oregon

Harvey, 86, who has been with ABC Radio Networks for 54 years, signed a 10-year, $100 million contract three years ago. His engaging The Rest of the Story segments are written by his son and announcer Paul Aurandt. Born in Tulsa, Okla., and based in Chicago, Harvey doesn’t consider himself a serious journalist, but a “professional parade watcher.” He’s been married to his wife, Lynne, a former schoolteacher, for more than 50 years.
