The Fox News family is in mourning today after longtime radio and cable news broadcaster Alan Colmes passed away. He was only 66 years-old.
Mediaite reported that Colmes’ death was announced on Fox News just a few moments ago in a segment narrated by Sean Hannity, who worked with Colmes for years on the venerable talk show Hannity & Colmes. Hannity described his former colleague as “one of the nicest, kindest, and most generous people.”
