Iverson said Lange moved to San Francisco with Cannon “to work in radio playing rock ’n’ roll. Cannon was fired and returned to Minneapolis. Lange stayed in California, and his big break came … on ‘The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show’ ” starting in 1962 as the announcer and Ford’s sidekick.

Lange, born on Aug. 15, 1932, in St. Paul, is survived by his wife, former Miss America Nancy Fleming; a sister; five children, two stepchildren and four grandchildren.
