Colmes is best known for being the left-wing counterpart to conservative commentator Sean Hannity during their show Fox News show “Hannity and Colmes” from 1996 to 2009. He continued to be a frequent contributor on Fox News after the show’s end, hosting “versus” segments on the network, where he addressed the most popular news issues of the day.
Some of Colmes’ colleagues and political opponents tweeted their respects to the late former host.
So sad to hear of the death of Fox News colleague Alan Colmes. He and I agreed on little, but I liked him immensely. Good guy. R.I.P.
