Dominick George "Don" Pardo (born February 22, 1918) is an American radio and television announcer best known as the long-running late night sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live.
Pardo, a member of the Television Hall of Fame, is noted for his long association with NBC, working as the announcer for early incarnations of such notable shows as The Price Is Right, Jeopardy!, and NBC Nightly News. He has been the announcer of Saturday Night Live for all but one of its seasons. He continues to provide voiceover services during the program's opening montage, several years after his retirement from NBC.

Pardo was born in Westfield, Massachusetts, and spent his childhood in Norwich, Connecticut, and Providence, Rhode Island. He was hired for his first radio position at WJAR-AM in Providence in 1938. Pardo joined NBC as an in-house announcer in 1944, remaining on the network staff for 60 years. Among the radio programs he worked on as an announcer were Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator, the sci-fi show X-1 and Dimension X among others. During World War II, he worked as a war reporter for NBC Radio.
In the early 1950s, he served as announcer for many of RCA's and NBC's closed-circuit color television demonstrations.[citation needed]
Pardo made his mark on game shows for NBC as the voice of the original The Price Is Right from 1956 until it moved to ABC in 1963. Pardo's next show was Jeopardy!, which he announced from 1964 until the original version of the series ended in 1975. Pardo reprised that role with a cameo voiceover in "Weird Al" Yankovic's 1984 song "I Lost on Jeopardy" (a parody of The Greg Kihn Band's 1983 hit song "Jeopardy"). He also announced New Yorka??based NBC game shows such as Three on a Match, Winning Streak, and Jackpot!, all three of which were Bob Stewart productions.
Pardo squeezed in many other assignments at NBC, including the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (until 1999),[citation needed]WNBC-TV's Live at Five, and NBC
