Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes was an American radio and television host and liberal political commentator for the Fox News Channel. He also anchors ‘The Alan Colmes Show’ which airs nationally on Fox News as well as on ‘Sirius XM.’ In addition, from 1996 to 2009 Colmes was the co-host of the ‘Hannity and Colmes’ show. The split between Hannity and Colmes was itself a strong plot twist to the successful story of the show. “I approached Bill Shine, FNC’s Senior Vice President of Programming, earlier this year about wanting to move on after 12 years to develop new and challenging ways to contribute to the growth of the network,"  Colmes said in a statement. "Although it’s bittersweet to leave one of the longest marriages on cable news, I’m proud that both Sean (Hannity) and I remained unharmed after sitting side by side, night after night for so many years.”

Sean Hannity said, “Not only has Alan been a remarkable co-host, he’s been a great friend which is rare in this industry — I’ll genuinely miss sparring with such a skillful debate partner.”

Arguably, the reason that Colmes left the show, was the strong criticism that he withstood over the years. More specifically, he was sometimes referred to disparagingly as a "token liberal" or a "Fox News liberal."

At the beginning of his last week on the H&C show, Colmes was guest on The Colbert Report where he was “fired” by Colbert until the end of the show on the grounds that he pointing out fallacies in his logic. However, Alan remained a member of the FNC family. In fact, since last year – 2015 – he has been a part of Fox News Channel's ‘The Greg Gutfeld Show’, by adding the voice of an animatronic robot face named The Liberal Panel.

Aside from the above, Colmes was also a blog writer, author and columnist collaborating predominantly with Fox News. Along with broadcasting, Alan governs the ‘Liberal blog’ and adds to ‘AOL News.’

Alan Colmes was born on September 24, 1950 in New York City. He went to the local public schools and attended ‘Hofstra University’ from where he earned a graduate degree in the arts, in 1971. He also participated in the operation of the University’s radio station WRHU.
