... Tom Snyder, TV Host
Tom Snyder died Sunday in San Francisco from complications associated with leukemia, said his longtime producer and friend Mike Horowicz.
Starting on the Tomorrow Show following the Tonight Show on NBC Snyder's interviews were always full of smoking. In 1995, he returned to late night television as the host of "The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder" on CBS. The program followed David Letterman's "Late Show" until 1998, when Snyder was replaced by Craig Kilborn.
Snyder was 71.
