saturday night live announcer don pardo dead 96

Saturday Night Live has lost its voice.

Announcer Don Pardo, whose baritone could be heard presenting the ever-changing cast week after week, passed away on Monday at his home in Tucson at the age of 96.

Don had also served as the announcer on The Price Is Right and Jeopardy!, but he was best known for SNL, where he announced 39 out of 40 seasons.

It's difficult to even imagine Saturday nights without that voice. So sad.

Here are just a few of the remembrances by SNL cast members, guests, and friends who took to Twitter to mourn his passing:

Live from the court room…it's Chris Kattan's sentence!

We reported earlier how Chris had been arrested for a DUI after he crashed into a parked Department of Transportation vehicle!

Now, Chris will not only have to spend the next 3 years being on probation, attend drug and alcohol classes, he'll have to cough up a whopping $500 fine!

That's right, the Saturday Night Live alum will have to go through a 3-month alcohol program, and complete classes in 104 Narcotics Anonymous.

On top of that, he'll have to participate in a Hospital and Morgue Program, which sounds like it might be a real eye opening experience for him.

From now on, he's not allowed to drive with any drugs in his system! That is, unless he happens to have a valid prescription!

According to sources in law enforcement, Chris had been on Ambien the time of his arrest.
