Radio personality Paul Harvey celebrates his 89th birthday, and is still doing three broadcasts each weekday and two more on Saturdays. He's near the end of a 10-year contract with ABC Radio worth $100 million. He has the biggest audience of any radio personality. With so much money riding on the continued good health of someone of such senior years, many in the radio industry wonder what comes next.
