Legendary Radio Personality Casey Kasem Dies at 82

Casey Kasem, who entertained radio listeners for almost four decades as the host of countdown shows such as "American Top 40" and "Casey's Top 40," died early Sunday, according to a Facebook post from his daughter Kerri Kasem.

Casey Kasem was 82 and had been hospitalized in Washington state for two weeks. Kasem's longtime friend, Gonzalo Venecia, and his younger brother, Mouner Kasem, were also with him when he died at St. Anthony's Hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington, at 3:25 a.m. Sunday, a family member said. Casey Kasem had been suffering from Lewy body disease, the most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer's. He had recently been the subject of a bitter court battle involving three of his children by a previous marriage and his wife, Jean.

He will be missed!
