Perhaps you heard Mike Snyder and Jane McGarry's tearful parting of ways this morning on Dunham and Miller, where the closing segment of Monday's 10 p.m. KXAS-Channel 5 newscast seemingly played on a loop. The station's story concerning Snyder's new deal with the NBC affiliate -- as mentioned in May, he will continue anchoring the 5 and 6 p.m. weekday newscasts, but no longer JaM on it with his longtime co-anchor -- and the accompanying adios-ish just went online. The video's now after the jump, but KXAS left out the best part -- you know, where Jane and Mike exchange sniffling I-love-yous. I've sent an angry letter to station management on your behalf.
Update: Courtesy a Friend of Unfair Park in the comments, here's the full video, including Snyder and McGarry's final moments as on-air partners. That's enormous passion right there.
