TV pioneer Tom Snyder interviews Mayor Dennis Kucinich at Tony’s Diner

Broadcasting pioneer and legend Tom Snyder, who passed away Sunday, July 29, came to Cleveland in 1978 to interview then-Mayor Dennis Kucinich. It was “classic” Tom Snyder, and we offer this video to pay tribute to him and to the style and approach that set him apart from other broadcasters.

“Tom Snyder was an innovator and a very serious journalist who really mastered the in-depth analytical interview,” Congressman Kucinich said on hearing of Snyder’s passing. “He was very funny, he was bold…it was an honor to be on his show. He asked tough questions, and I will miss him, ” said Kucinich .

We all will. And here’s an example of why.
