Profile Bio Text
Alan Colmes (born September 24, 1950) is an American radio/television host and liberal political commentator. He is best known as the former co-host on Fox News Channel`s political debate program Hannity & Colmes. It was announced on November 24, 2008 that Colmes would leave the show at the end of the year, and January 9, 2009 was the last airing of Hannity & Colmes. Colmes continues to host the national talk radio program The Alan Colmes Show, which is syndicated by Fox News Radio. Colmes is a graduate of Hofstra University. He is married to Dr. Jocelyn Crowley, an associate professor in the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, at Rutgers University, where she is also affiliated with the Department of Women’s Studies. She is the sister of Monica Crowley, an occasional replacement host as Colmes` conservative foil on Hannity and Colmes.
Colmes began his career in stand-up comedy. He developed his radio career in the Northeast, eventually working at stations like WABC, WNBC, WHN and WEVD in New York and WEZE and WZLX in Boston. He is syndicated nationally, starting with his involvement with Daynet, a venture created by Colmes and other regional radio hosts. Daynet was sold to Major Networks, Inc., in 1994. Colmes kept his own show, which is now distributed by Fox News Radio. His radio career took off when WABC hired him for the morning drive time slot, billed as, "W. Alan B. Colmes," as in the station`s call sign. When WNBC let its staff go in 1988, Colmes was the final radio personality to sign off, doing so with the words: "I`m Alan Colmes. Thank you, God bless you, and for the last time, this is 66 WNBC." He was well-known in New York City when he was hired by Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, in 1996. He was the co-host of Hannity and Colmes, beginning with the Fox News Channel launch on October 6, 1996 and ending on January 9, 2009.
Colmes has written one book, Red, White & Liberal: How Left is Right and Right is Wrong (ISBN 0-06-056297-8) which was published in October 2003. On November 24, 2008, it was announced that Colmes would leave Hannity and Colmes at the end of 2008. Colmes will remain a commentator at Fox News. No one will replace him on the program, but there will be a segment called the "Great American Panel," which will showcase three guests to offer a mix of commentary from across the political spectrum.
