CNN Political Contributor Tony Snow Dies

Former FOX News Sunday host, White House Press Secretary and CNN Political Contributor, Tony Snow, died this morning after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Here are some comments from his colleagues and bosses at CNN (via TVNewser):

Larry King: "Tony Snow was a remarkable colleague and a good friend. He was extraordinarily likable, not only for his sense of humor and wit, but for his gift of giving others the space to express opinions, even if they countered his own. Devoted to his country and family, Tony was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word, and he will be deeply missed."

Jon Klein: "Tony Snow was a highly respected colleague and a friend to many of us. The intelligence and warmth he brought to every conversation will be missed and the example he set of professionalism combined with humanity will be long remembered. He loved this country and its people and was looking forward to getting out into America to listen to their stories and share them with the rest of us. It is all of our loss that he never got the chance to do so. We regret that he was not a part of our CNN family longer, and our deepest condolences go out to his family."
