2007: Journalist and talk show host Tom Snyder dies at the age of 71 in San Francisco, California, from complications of leukemia. Snyder, seen here in a 1977 publicity photo, was best known for his late night talk shows "The Tomorrow Show" on NBC in the 1970s and 1980s, and "The Late Late Show," on CBS in the 1990s.
