The long-time voice of “Saturday Night Live” has fallen silent.  The New York Times reports Don Pardo died Monday at his home in Arizona.  He was 96.  Pardo was best known for announcing the performers at the open of nearly every episode of SNL, from the premiere in 1975 until just last year.  Viewers also heard his voice in the early years of game shows “The Price is Right” and “Jeopardy!”
