LOS ANGELES (AP) — “It’s a sad day for the broadcasting community and for radio listeners around the world. When I was a kid, I would listen to Casey Kasem’s AT40 show every weekend, and dream about someday becoming a radio DJ. So when decades later I took over his AT40 countdown show, it was a surreal moment. Casey had a distinctive friendly on-air voice, and he was just as affable and nice if you had the privilege to be in his company. He’ll be greatly missed by all of us.” – media personality Ryan Seacrest

“Very sorry to hear of Casey’s passing. Aside from being a Johnny Carson-esque staple in all our lives, Casey was always so personally kind to me. I still have a voicemail he left me years ago telling me how much he loved my new record at the time. He was gracious. And a class act.” – singer Richard Marx

“Early this Father’s Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends. Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken. Thank you for all your love, support and prayers. The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our Dad.” – Kerri, Mike and Julie Kasem

“For many, the multitalented Casey Kasem was the voice of popular music, and his long-running countdown program brought exposure for many of his fellow union members. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends, and may we all remember him best by `reaching for the stars.'” – Ken Howard, president of SAG-AFTRA, which represents actors, DJs and other media professionals
