Tom Snyder 1936-2007

Tom Snyder of late night television fame passed away on Sunday, July 29, 2007. He had been battling with Leukemia since 2005, he was 71 years old at the time of his death.

Tom was a leader in late night television and has been given credit for his work by such greats as David Letterman. He appeared on late night television twice in his career, first with The Tomorrow Show, and several years later with The Late, Late Show which is now hosted by Craig Ferguson.

I was just a kid when Tom was at his peak in the 70’s and 80’s, but I do remember his style and I believe it started trends that are carried on today with some of the better hosts of late night TV.
