FR says the White House will announce Tony Snow as its new press secretary at 9:10. I’m going to go out on a limb and assume the announcement will be carried live by whomever’s guest-hosting Snow’s radio show today, which airs from 9 a.m. to noon EST. Listen live here. “The connections of Snow” indeed.

UPDATE: You can watch live over the web at the White House website.

We’ll have video of the announcement in an update here if anything happens to warrant it. Congrats to Tony, one of the most likeable guys on the right and by no means a rote Bush apologist.

Which, er, should make his new stint as a rote Bush apologist pretty interesting to watch.

UPDATE: It was over in five, but Bush did address Snow’s transition from occasionally sharp critic to apologist — after taking a dig at the gaggle. Click to watch.

UPDATE: Radio Equalizer rounds up left-wing reaction to Snow’s appointment.

UPDATE: The Washington press corps already has a nickname for Tony.

UPDATE: On second thought, maybe Geraghty should have been the new press secretary.

UPDATE: MediaBistro reports that Brian Kilmeade and Judge Andrew Napolitano will replace Snow on Fox News radio.
