Via Reuters: Talk show host Tom Snyder dies: media

Talk show host and newsman Tom Snyder has died in San Francisco from complications of leukemia, Entertainment Tonight reported on Monday.

Snyder, 71, was said to have died on Sunday afternoon. He announced on his Web site about two years ago that he had been diagnosed with leukemia.

His publicist was not immediately available for comment.

As I noted over two years ago when it was announced that he had been diagnosed with Leukemia, Snyder will always have a warm place in my heart as he became a late night companion for me and my wife when our oldest was an infant who didn’t want to go to sleep. As such, Snyder has a place in the early history of Oldest Son’s childhood. He, no doubt, has a similar place in the hearts of many insomniacs out there.

May he rest in peace.
