Casey Kasem, the man behind one of the most famous voices on radio and television from the '70s through the 2000s, has died after a long battle with Parkinson's and dementia. He was 82.

"Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken," said his daughter Kerri Kasem via social media. "The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our dad."

Kasem was best known as the host of American Top 40, the weekly countdown show that he co-founded in 1970 and hosted from 1970 through 1989, when he was succeeded by Shadoe Stevens.
