Kemal Amin "Casey" Kasem (born April 27, 1932) is an American former radio personality and voice actor, known for being the host of the nationally syndicated Top 40 countdown show American Top 40 and for playing the character Shaggy in the Saturday morning cartoon franchise Scooby-Doo.
Kasem, Don Bustany and Ron Jacobs founded the American Top 40 franchise in 1970, hosting it from 1970 to 1988 and from 1998 to 2004. Between January 1989 and early 1998, he was the host of Casey's Top 40, Casey's Hot 20, and Casey's Countdown. Also beginning in 1998 Kasem hosted two adult contemporary spinoffs of American Top 40, American Top 20 and American Top 10. Kasem retired from AT20 and AT10 on July 4, 2009 and both shows ended on that day.
In addition to his radio shows, Kasem has provided the voice of many commercials; has done many voices for Sesame Street; provided the character voice of Peter Cottontail in the Rankin/Bass production of Here Comes Peter Cottontail; was the voice of NBC; helps out with the annual Jerry Lewis telethon; and provided the cartoon voices of Robin in Super Friends, Mark on Battle of the Planets, and a number of characters for the Transformers cartoon series of the 1980s. In 2008, he was the voice of Out of Sight Retro Night which aired on WGN America, but was replaced by rival Rick Dees. After 40 years, Casey retired from his role of voicing Shaggy in 2009, although he did voice Shaggy's father in the 2010 TV series, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Kasem's daughter Kerri Kasem has followed in her father's footsteps by hosting the nationally syndicated Sixx Sense and The Sideshow Countdown for Clear Channel Communications, among other shows.
Kasem's signature sign-off was "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."

  • After over 30 years he retired from the American Top 40 (AT40), but is still doing the American Top 20 (AT20).
  • Father of 'Kerri Kasem' (qv) and 'Mike Kasem' (qv)
  • He is of Palestinian/Lebanese heritage
  • He is a strict vegetarian and suggested that Shaggy (whom he voices on Scooby-Doo) should be a vegetarian as well.
  • Hit #103 on the Billboard Singles Charts in 1964 with "A Letter from Elaina" (Warner 5474)
  • He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Radio at 6931 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
  • The youngest member ever to be inducted into the 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.
  • Also voiced the character Cliffjumper in _"Transformers" (1984)_ (qv) and 1986's _The Transformers: The Movie (1986)_ (qv). Funnily enough, his first duty in the movie was to "commence countdown" (for the shuttle which was about to launch).
