(CNN) -- Casey Kasem, who entertained radio listeners for almost four decades as the host of countdown shows such as “American Top 40” and “Casey’s Top 40,” died early Sunday, according to a Facebook post from his daughter Kerri Kasem.

Casey Kasem was 82 and had been hospitalized in Washington state for two weeks.

“Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken,” Kerri Kasem wrote. “Thank you for all your love, support and prayers. The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our Dad.”

Kerri Kasem said friends and family were by her father’s side when he died.
