Tom Snyder Dies
MSNBC is reporting that broadcaster Tom Snyder has died from leukemia. Snyder was 71.
Snyder hosted NBC's legendary Tomorrow Show in the 70's, worked in news, worked in radio, and finished up his broadcasting career as the first host of The Late, Late Show. Snyder was very intelligent, often bombastic, sometimes confrontational, and always interesting to watch. I'm not a huge fan of TV talk shows anymore (though there was a time earlier in my life when I could sit down and watch Carson, Letterman and Costas in one 2 1/2 hour block!!!) but I do miss the old Snyder "Colorcast." Here's a wonderful montage from Snyder's NBC days. So fire up a colortini, sit back, relax, and watch the pictures, now, as they fly through the air...
