His website was a frequent place for me to get political stories to blog about. Then around a week or so ago, Alan left a message on the site saying that he’s taking a brief leave from blogging, and assured his visitors that he will return soon. Today, I made my usual visit to alan.com to see what was going on and was shocked to the core with the news that Mr. Colmes had died.
Rest In Peace Mr. Colmes. You’re already missed.
America’s Newsroom co-anchor Bill Hemmer announced the news during Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox program.
“We have, yet again, some sad news to report here at the Fox News Channel,” said Hemmer. “Fox News contributor and frequent guest here in America’s Newsroom, Alan Colmes, has passed away.”
Colmes is survived by his wife, Jocelyn Crowley, who issued the following statement to the network:
“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.”
