Don Pardo still introducing viewers to SNL at 92, only this season he’ll be doing it from Tucson

The Arizona Daily Star in Tucson reports that Don Pardo, at age 92, will return once again for the 36th season of Saturday Night Live to provide the voice-over introductions of the cast, host, musical guest, and Weekend Update. Pardo had been flying back and forth from Tucson to NYC in recent years. Lorne Michaels reportedly considers Pardo to be a good luck charm for SNL. He sounded pretty frail when delivering a pre-show message to the audience that I was part of last season, so allowing him to record his intros from his home should be better for all parties concerned. Just remember, though: Pardo's still going at 92!
