Daughter Kerri Kasem was granted conservatorship over Jean Kasem's objection.

Kasem was found soon after in Washington state [May 12, 2014].


Announced that he was suffering from advanced Parkinson's disease [October 1, 2013].


After his final cartoon role on Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated (2010), he retired from voice acting at age 81.


Until July 4-5, 2009, hosted "American Top 10", a three-hour radio show that counted down the Top 10 hits in America as based on Radio & Records' Adult Contemporary chart. The show also featured a different theme each week for the "extras", plus Casey's trademark Long Distance Dedications.


In early 2004, he retired from American Top 40 (AT40), but continued hosting American Top 20 (AT20) and American Top 10 (AT10) until July 4-5, 2009, when he retired from the countdown show business.


Celebrity sponsor of the Great American Meatout on March 20, 2001.


The youngest member ever to be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame, has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and received the first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award from Billboard Magazine in 1997.


He was once also seen on Late Show with David Letterman (1993) performing a Top Ten list: "The Top Ten Favorite Numbers from 1 to 10". The countdown of numbers was paused at number 2 for Kasem to spoof one of his long distance dedications.


At the beginning of Kasem's 12th year (1991-92) of America's Top 10 (1980), he handed over most of the hosting duties to Siedah Garrett, later Tommy Puett, while he had limited screen time. Afterwards, Kasem returned for what would be his last year, until he closed down the show in 1992 to focus on launching "Casey's Countdown", an adult contemporary music spin-off of Casey's Top 40.


Made two cameo appearances on Saved by the Bell (1989). In one episode, he played himself as the host of a school dance contest, and in the other, he narrated the story about the rise, fall, and rise again of the school group's band.


Also voiced the character Cliffjumper on The Transformers (1984) and The Transformers: The Movie (1986). Funnily enough, his first duty in the movie was to "commence countdown" (for the shuttle which was about to launch).


He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Radio at 6931 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on April 27, 1981 (his 49th birthday).


Announcer for NBC Saturday Mornings in the 1980s and an animal rights activist.


He voiced Mark, the American name of Ken Washio on Battle of the Planets (1978), the first American version of Gatchaman, as well as Bluestreak, Cliffjumper, Teletraan I and Dr. Arkeville on The Transformers (1984) animated series, but left during the third season due to what he perceived as offensive caricatures of Arabs and Arab countries in one episode.


He initially was hired as the narrator for the situation comedy Soap (1977), but quit the series after the pilot due to the controversial adult themes the show promoted, hence, the job was given to future game show announcer Rod Roddy.


A political liberal, he narrated a campaign ad for George McGovern's 1972 presidential campaign, and hosted fundraisers for Jesse Jackson's presidential campaigns in 1984 and 1988.


Had the weekly radio show "American Top 40" (where he counted down the top 40 hit songs in the United States) in the 1970s and 1980s. He was known for the phrase "Details coming up", which he often said just before a commercial break.

Attended and graduated from Northwestern High School in Detroit, Michigan (1950).
