LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Cable television news network CNN has hired former White House press secretary Tony Snow as a conservative political contributor.

In a statement released on Monday, Jon Klein, president of CNN/U.S., described Snow, a longtime host of several programs on the rival network Fox News Channel, as a "well-known and respected observer of politics."

Snow, 52, has had a long-standing relationship with the White House as press secretary to President George W. Bush between 2006-2007, and as speech-writing director and media affairs advisor to President George H.W. Bush in 1991.
