BREAKING: Popular Fox News Personality Suddenly Dies at 66…

by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

If you are a longtime Fox News viewer, you no doubt remember the groundbreaking show “Hannity and Colmes”.

Alan Colmes, an outspoken liberal, and Sean, a passionate conservative, would argue about hot political topics each night and it was great television.

Colmes ultimately left that show but remained a regular guest on many Fox News shows, in addition to a nationally-syndicated radio program.

Sadly, we have learned that Alan Colmes passed away today at the age of 66.

From FoxNews:

Fox News Channel’s Alan Colmes has passed away at age 66 after a brief illness. Colmes leaves behind his wife, Jocelyn Crowley.

Bill Hemmer announced the sad news this morning on “America’s Newsroom,” which then aired a tribute package from Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity, his former co-host on “Hannity & Colmes.”

In a statement this morning, Hannity called Alan Colmes “one of life’s most decent, kind and wonderful people you’d ever want to meet.”

“When Alan and I started ‘Hannity & Colmes,’ there wasn’t a day that went by where we didn’t say we were the two most fortunate men in all of television,” said Hannity.

Despite their political differences, Hannity said the two “forged a deep friendship” over the years. “Alan, in the midst of great sickness and illness, showed the single greatest amount of courage I’ve ever seen,” he said.

Colmes was known for his electric commentary and for the fierce debates across Fox News programs since the channel’s launch in 1996. “Hannity & Colmes” debuted on Fox News in 1996 and ran until Jan. 2009.  Colmes also hosted the nationally-syndicated “Alan Colmes Show” on Fox News Radio. He addressed his recent absence from the show in a note to listeners on Jan. 30.

“As I previously mentioned on the show last year, there would be times I would be taking off from the show to deal with a medical issue. This is why I’ve been out recently and will be out this week as well. But I will be back taking your calls as soon as I can,” he wrote.

Colmes’ passing comes just days after the death of Fox News Channel’s Brenda Buttner, who died at age 55 after a battle with cancer. Neil Cavuto remembered the “Bulls & Bears” host on his show Monday.

In January, Colmes told his fans he was stepping away because of medical issues.

Friends and colleagues are remembering Alan this morning on Twitter…

Rest in peace, Alan.

          If I was making that much the very last thing I would do is let everybody in on the way to do it. I’d want as few to know so I could keep the biz for myself.

          A scam that should be avoided like the plague.

      In this day and age, a guy like Colmes is a throwback to a time when many Liberals weren’t nasty and vile. I could mourn the passing of someone like him.

    Even though I thought he was a horses ass for some of his near-sighted liberal views, I must say I liked him a lot more than Bob Beckel or Juan Williams!!!
