Former Bush White House Press Secretary Tony Snow has joined the CNN stable of political contributors. Mr. Snow resigned his job in November after waging his second battle with cancer.
He was a longtime conservative commentator and player before becoming press secretary in 2006. He was a speechwriter and media adviser for President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s.
Mr. Snow also was a member of the founding on-air team at Fox News Channel when it launched in 1996.
Before that he had substituted for the “from the right” co-host of “Crossfire” on CNN. He also spent two decades as a newspaper writer and syndicated columnist.
“I’m delighted to be able to join CNN during the most exciting and unpredictable political year in memory,” Mr. Snow said in the announcement of his hire by CNN/U.S. President Jon Klein. “I’m eager to get started, since this race is sure to shape American politics for years to come.”
Mr. Snow is scheduled to appear tonight on “Larry King Live” and as part of the Democratic Pennsylvania coverage that starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday on CNN.
