According to FOX, Tony Snow, the former White House press secretary and conservative pundit who bedeviled the press corps and charmed millions as a FOX News television and radio host, died after a long bout with cancer. He was 53.

A syndicated columnist, editor, TV anchor, radio show host and musician, Snow worked in nearly every medium in a career that spanned more than 30 years.

I liked Tony Snow. I know he fed the company line and whatnot … and would occasionally be argumentative … but he was fun to watch. And occasionally, he’d fill in for Bill O’Reilly on radio. I always thought he did a great job.
