Just in. The progressives lost a voice in their movement. Fox News contributor and talk radio agitator Alan Colmes passed away. It was trending on social media today.
The former co-host of Hannity & Colmes passed away today at age 66. For the time being, his show is on. The Alan Colmes Show is on weeknights from 6pm - 9pm on syndication. It's a part of the Fox News Radio Network.
The last time I heard Colmes on radio, he said that he's taking a moment away from radio. He said that he would be returning back to radio as soon as possible. During the time he had guest hosts on his show. They couldn't tell the audience his situation, but they promised he would return as soon as possible.
He's been off the air since December 30.
Colmes was the counterbalance to Sean "Softball" Hannity, the most annoying conservative agitator in the junk food media. The agitators were often duking it out on many issues.
Many of his critics complained that Colmes was too soft on conservatives and wouldn't stand up to Softball Hannity, the boisterous and bombastic agitator. Colmes often dismissed this as just being fair to all his guests. He wasn't afraid to call out conservatives and liberals for going in the wrong direction.
|Stephen Colbert's most famous moment was getting Alan Colmes on his program to do a skit. Colmes who resigned from Hannity & Colmes found a place with Colbert (at least for one day).|
He was staunchly anti-Trump. He made it known on his radio show.
Hannity had leaked some knowledge of Colmes on his right wing carnival earlier this month. He was showing despair and sadness about cancer treatment.
Hannity said that Colmes was "one of the nicest, kindest, and most generous people" he's ever worked for.
Colmes had cancer.
Colmes was married to Jocelyn Crowley, the sister of Monica Crowley, one of Trump's failed picks for his national security team. His former colleagues hit social media to remark about how Colmes made an impact in their lives.
He will be missed by me personally. I had often called the radio show.
His staff will never filter calls. He would often take some of the most outrageous callers. And in his radio graffiti, he would often allow one sentence at the end of his show.
This comes shortly after learning that Fox News and Fox Business host Brenda Buttner passing away at the age of 56.
