(Westlake) – WTAM 1100 Sports Director Mike Snyder has been immortalized, and is now a member of the Cleveland Journalism Hall of Fame, sponsored by The Press Club of Cleveland. Mike was one of the Cleveland journalists who were inducted into the Hall of Fame at ceremonies held Thursday night in Westlake.
Mike has been on WTAM 1100 since the station was still known as WWWE, doing sports during the Mike Trivisonno Show, and later on as part of Cleveland’s Morning News with Wills and Snyder. He is also well-known as the pre-and-post-game host for the Cleveland Cavaliers Radio Network, and at one time, even did free-lance work for ESPN.
Also inducted into the Hall of Fame were Harry Boomer of WOIO-TV, Steve Gleydura of Cleveland Magazine, David Kordalski of Crain’s Cleveland Business, Denise Polverine of WKYC-TV, and the late Vivian Witt, of the Cleveland Jewish News. In addition, the Press Club’s annual Chuck Heaton Award was given to Leon Bibb of WKYC-TV for his contributions to the community.
Mike joins some other past and present WTAM staff in the Hall of Fame, including Ken Robinson, Casey Coleman, John Webster, and the Voice of the Indians, Tom Hamilton. WTAM's Tom Moore was last year's recipient of the Press Club's Chuck Heaton Award.
The Cleveland Journalism Hall of Fame was created in 1981, and is headquartered at Nighttown in Cleveland Heights.
