(Reuters) - Mr Casey Kasem, the United States radio personality with the distinctive voice who counted down the top pop music hits on his popular weekly show and also provided the voice of hippie sleuth Shaggy on the Scooby Doo cartoons, died on Sunday. He was 82.
"Early this Father's Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends," his daughter Kerri Kasem said in a statement posted online.
"Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken."
Mr Kasem son Mike Kasem, is currently a DJ at Singapore's Class 95FM music station.
