Don Pardo Remembers the Night Darrell Hammond Filled in for Him on SNL
Another one of TV’s famous voices has left us. Don Pardo, who, along with being a staff announcer for NBC since 1944, was famous for being the voice of Saturday Night Live, passed away Monday night at his home in Tucson, AZ. Along with other famous voices like Late Night With David Letterman’s Bill Wendell or The Price Is Right’s Johnny Olson, we never really got to see Don. But we all knew that voice! In this 2006 interview, he recalls one night when he came down with laryngitis, and how Darrell Hammond, doing an impression of him, filled in on SNL.
