Alan Samuel Colmes, 66, has died of cancer. He was an American radio and television host, liberal political commentator for the Fox News Channel, and blogger. Colmes died at a Manhattan medical center on February 23, 2017 after suffering from lymphoma.
He was the host of The Alan Colmes Show, a nationally syndicated talk-radio show distributed by Fox News Radio that was broadcast throughout the United States on Fox News Talk on Sirius and XM.
From 1996 to 2009, Colmes served as the co-host of Hannity & Colmes, a nightly political debate show on Fox News Channel. Beginning in 2015, Colmes supplied the voice of The Liberal Panel, an animatronic robot face built into a panelled wall who spouts conventionally liberal political opinions, on Fox News Channel's The Greg Gutfeld Show.
In addition to broadcasting, Colmes ran the Liberaland blog and contributed to AOL News. He is the author of Red, White & Liberal: How Left Is Right and Right Is Wrong (2003) and Thank the Liberals for Saving America (2012).
Colmes was remembered by his friends as kind hearted and open minded. "It's like a part of me left today... This was a good man with a great, huge heart." said Sean Hannity
"Alan was civil. Alan was kind. He was the staunchest supporter of freedom of speech I think I've ever met." said Brit Hume.
