NEW YORK (WABC) -- He was a wise-cracking disc jockey whose voice was so recognizable to listeners.

Legendary New York radio DJ Dan Ingram has died at the age of 83.

Born on Long Island, Ingram spent five decades at top-40 radio stations, most notably WABC Radio. He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2007.

He retired in 2003.
