This is so heartbreaking. Fox News commentator Alan Colmes passed away at the age of 66 following a ‘brief illness’ today, Feb. 23, and he will certainly be missed. Get all of the details here.
Alan Colmes, one of the few liberal commentators on the Fox News network, has died, as his official website confirmed in a statement. He was just 66 years old.
“Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness,” the statement says. “He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Dr. Jocelyn Elise Crowley. He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn. He will be missed. The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.” So sad.
Alan was one half of Hannity & Colmes along with Sean Hannity, 55. The show ended in 2009, but Alan continued to stay in the public eye by running a blog called Liberaland. He also contributed to AOL and Fox News.
