Alan Colmes, best known for his liberal views in contrast with conservative counterpart Sean Hannity on their long-running FOX News Channel program "Hannity & Colmes", has died at age 66. "He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Dr. Jocelyn Elise Crowley".

Alan Colmes, one of the few liberal commentators on the Fox News network, has died, as his official website confirmed in a statement.


Colmes had been battling an undisclosed illness for a brief period of time, according to reports.

"He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral", his family said. "He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with [me]".


Colmes is also the second Fox News personality death in less than a week, passing away days after Brenda Buttner, who had been struggling against cancer. He continued to sporadically appear on Fox News broadcast segments, although he concentrated upon his talk radio show during the latter part of his career.

Our prayers are with Colmes' family at this time.


Colmes was the author of the 2003 book Red, White & Liberal: How Left is Right and Right is Wrong, and its follow-up volume, Thank the Liberals For Saving America (and why you should).
