- Good morning, Americans, I'm Paul Harvey!
And now, page two!
- Celebrity Endorsement: The man really loved his EdenPure heaters, Select Comfort beds, Bose radios, and of course...Cit-ra-cal! He wouldn't dare advertise a product he didn't enjoy personally.
- Grandfather Clause: Even as his show became surrounded by political talk like Rush Limbaugh and Neal Boortz or other local hosts, stations continued to carry his three daily shows reliably at 8:30am, noon and in evening drive ("The Rest of the Story"). Stations that dropped him before his death saw longtime listeners flee because of how the show became a regular habit.
- Guest Host: Several, most notably his son, Paul Harvey Jr. A long spell of guest hosts occurred when Paul came down with pneumonia; among them were the aforementioned Limerick and Gross, other ABC personnel, Mike Huckabee, and even former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson.
- Last of His Kind: It held out to be the final syndicated radio program that lasted fifteen minutes; others are longer than that.
- Long Runners: News and Comment lasted from 1944 to 2009. That's right, 65 years.
- Product Placement: Sometimes it would take a minute to realize that Harvey's live-read of an ad had begun. That's how persuasive his voice could be.
- Signing Off Catch Phrase: "Paul Harvey... good day!" and "And now you know... the rest of the story!"
- Vocal Evolution: Surprisingly averted; his delivery barely changed even into the 1990s and 2000s, barring some episodes during his bout with pneumonia when he sounded very rough.
- Working Through the Cold: Zig-zagged with the aforementioned pneumonia: sometimes he would host as usual with his voice sounding really rough; other times, he would let someone fill in for him.
- You Know Who Said That: Former Trope Namer (Now You Know The Rest Of The Story), and, of course, The Rest of the Story lived by it.
Paul Harvey... good day!
