Best News Anchor

Jim Snyder, KSNV Channel 3

jim_snyder_no_credit_HOMEPAGECrisp and authoritative in the clutch, relaxed and conversational in segues, Snyder, 48, has been a formidable presence in the station’s ambitious 3-8 p.m. weeknight news programming. The five-hour news block, which required the shedding of popular syndicated programming last year, has been a topic of speculation since the death of station owner Jim Rogers last month. But Snyder (who co-anchors with Jessica Moore the first-in-market 7 p.m. as well as the 5 and 11 p.m. newscasts) and the KSNV team have shown the way local TV news can attain community-building substance rather than ratings-grabbing bluster.
