Broadcaster Tom Snyder Dies At 71
His Smoke-Filled Interviews Were Late-Night Staple

SAN FRANCISCO -- Talk show host Tom Snyder, whose smoke-filled interviews were a staple of late night television, has died after a struggle with leukemia. He was 71.

Snyder died Sunday in San Francisco from complications associated with leukemia, his longtime producer and friend Mike Horowicz told The Associated Press on Monday.

Known for his improvised, casual style and robust laughter, Snyder conducted a number of memorable interviews as host of NBC's "The Tomorrow Show." Among his guests were John Lennon, Charles Manson and Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols.

I didn't realize he was that old. That's too bad.

I will always remember him for his interview with Carl Sagan - and Dan Akroyd's impersonation of him while interviewing Mick Jagger

Grew up watching Snyder. Akroyd's imitation was spot on. Snyder will be missed.
