Dana appears in his hometown paper...

On Ken P. D. Snydecast #199: Penultibicentennial Dana mentions being profiled in his hometown paper.

Ken (who believes Dana's hometown in Las Vegas) mock's the paper comparing it to the Penny Saver.
But au contraire! The Morning Call is a daily newspaper based in Allentown PA and is owned by Tribune.

The Morning Call was founded on May 26, 1883 by Samuel S. Woolever. There are no pictures of him on the net other than this:
That's not even him unless he changed his middle name and died within 2 months of founding the paper.

Anyway, it's an important paper with 94,859 daily readers and 121,168 on Sunday.

The headline reads:
"Actors from the Lehigh Valley play animated characters in movies and TV"
by By Kathy Lauer-Williams

The article profiles Kate Micucci, Lara Jill Miller, Dana Snyder, Taylor Swift, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Daniel Dae Kim and Daniel Roebuck.

In that order.

So Dana is listed before The Rock.

Just wanted to point that out.

Here is what it says about the mighty Dana Snyder:

Dana Snyder

The former Easton resident left a drunken message on a show producer's voicemail, and was subsequently hired to play a character on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim cartoon "Aqua Teen Hunger Force."

Snyder voiced Master Shake, one of three main characters in "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" for nine seasons beginning in 2000. The show, now called "Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1," is slated to return for a 10th season this year.

Snyder also voiced the rude Shake in the 2007 film version of the show.

He shows up regularly on other Cartoon Network series, including as The Alchemist on "Venture Bros.," numerous characters on "Mad," Gazpacho on "Chowder" and Granny on "Squidbillies." He also voiced teacher Mr. Baldwin on Disney's "Fish Hooks."

Snyder voiced Strom Thurmond and Ulysses in 2007's "Dante's Inferno," which used paper puppets to animate a modern take on the 14th-century literary classic.

He is set to voice the character of Garthog in this year's "Hell & Back," an adult animated film about two friends who try to rescue their pal after he's accidentally dragged to hell.
