Fox News colleagues offer tributes as friend and coworker Alan Colmes dies at age 66

Fox News reported Thursday morning that after a brief illness, Alan Colmes has died at the age of 66.

The Colmes family issued the following statement:

Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66-years-old. He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, 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.

 

The likable, if sometimes curmudgeon liberal squared off for years with Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity and Colmes.”

The show ended in January 2009, and Colmes continued to host his own radio show “The Alan Colmes Show.”

Hannity called his long time partner “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,” Hannity said in a statement, according to Fox News.

“Alan, in the midst of great sickness and illness, showed the single greatest amount of courage I’ve ever seen.”

Condolences from colleagues and friends poured in on social media and all had a common theme: Colmes was a “good guy.”

RIP, sir.
