Tom Snyder (1936-2007) is one of broadcasting’s legends. With his tough, fair, and engaging manner, Snyder examined the subjects he investigated clear to the common man without stupefying the dialog or pursuing fluff. He was a genuine man who started off in radio and then moved on to national broadcasting for NBC. He secured his notoriety with the Tomorrow Show which ran late nights from nine years starting in 1973. Some of his notable interviews was that he was the last to interview John Lennon, and the first to interview U2 for an American audience.
Unfortunately, in 1982 the Tomorrow Show was canceled in favor of a particularly diverse type of program: Late Night, with David Letterman. But after a time on radio Tom Snyder returned to television to host the Late Late Show from 1995-1999. Sadly, he died due to complications from leukemia in 2007.
In the below video he interviews philosopher and author Ayn Rand. I owe a debt of gratitude to Ms. Rand since studying her philosophy has given me important insights to improve and change my life for the better. Philosophy is the study of man’s relation to the world and how to live and Ms. Rand’s philosophy is the best for living on Earth. I invite you to see for yourself with this excellent interview.
