White House spokesman Snow to quit

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow plans to leave his job before the end of the Bush administration in January 2009 because of financial concerns, a spokeswoman for President Bush said Friday.

Snow, who has cancer, plans to stay “as long as he can,” White House spokeswoman Emily Lawrimore said, and “will not resign before Labor Day.”

Snow, 52, a former television commentator for News Corp.'s Fox News, makes $168,000 a year as White House press secretary. He is married and has three children.
