"The King of the Jingles" Dick Noel, best known for his commercial work and his performance with the Ray Anthony Orchestra in the 1940s, died after a long illness Friday in Escondido, California, at age 90, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The World War II Navy veteran toured the country with the orchestra and was the voice of several of its hits in the late 1940s, including "Count Every Star," the celebrity publication noted.

Noel went on the host radio shows like "Ruth Lyons Show" in Cincinnati and was the lead singer in Chicago-based "Breakfast Club" with Don McNeill. After making television appearances on CBS's "Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts" and ABC's "The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show," he started doing commercial jingles in Chicago in 1965.

He earned the "The King of the Jingles" while recording some 15,000 commercial spots for everything from United Airlines to McDonald's during his career before retiring in the late 1980, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The publication said Noel had a "highly regarded" 1978 album "A Time for Love" with pianist Larry Novak, which features standard ballads "Send in the Clowns" and "Here's That Rainy Day."

Fans shared their condolences on social media.
