Just last October, KXAS-Channel 5 was congratulating anchor Mike Snyder for 25 years of service: "Mike has changed very little over the years, and is still dedicated and committed to his journalistic craft." But last night, Ed Bark noted that Snyder may be on his way out of the 10 p.m. anchor's chair-- so much for the mazel tov. According to Uncle Barky, Snyder's got two options on the table: One involves him staying on at 5 and 6 p.m. at drastically reduced pay; one of which involves an outright buyout. It's all based on "reliable sources," but the news comes just as Channel 5 confirms it's cutting staff -- by at least nine, according to Bark, many of whom are photojournalists. Ed has all the details.
