Casey Kasem dies at age of 82

CALIFORNIA - Radio legend, Casey Kasem, has died at the age of 82.

According to multiple reports, Kasem was surrounded by family and friends in a California hospital when he passed..

Kasem was suffering from advanced Parkinson's Disease and dementia. His wife Jean Kasem moved him to a convalescent home in Santa Monica a few months ago, but got into a vicious battle with three of Kasem's children from a previous marriage.

Last week, one of his daughters was granted the rights to take him off life support and she did just that including nutrition.

Kasem is most well known for being the original voice of "American Top 40."
