We report with deep sadness the passing of MethodShop‘s announcer, Fred Facey, on Sunday, April 13th, 2003 after a long battle with cancer. You might have heard Fred’s warm familiar voice on shows such as the TODAY Show, Meet The Press, MSNBC‘s The News with Brian Williams, and billboards for Carson Daly, Saturday Night Live (SNL) as well as many commercials. Facey was also a voice of WNBC news.

Fred kindly recorded a few audio intros for MethodShop in 1999 and picked up the lunch or bar tab too many times to count. One of his favorite places to go was a midtown Manhattan restaurant called Hurley’s Salon. In the summer of 2002, we took a series of photos at lunch with Fred and gave permission to NBC News to use those photos in their on-air obituaries.
We Will Miss You Fred!
A kind and gentle man with a wonderful sense of humor and a smooth sense of style, Fred was a true master at his craft. To say he will be greatly missed is an understatement. His memory will always remain close to our hearts. We miss you Salt! Mr. Facey was 72.
