Co-Host, Hannity & Colmes

Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes joined FOX News Channel (FNC) in 1996. He serves as the liberal counterpart and co-host of Hannity & Colmes (Monday-Friday 9-10PM ET), a one-hour debate-driven talk show focusing on controversial newsmakers and issues of the day.

After a string of successful radio shows on WNBC, WABC and WMCA in New York, Colmes gained a reputation as a hard-hitting liberal known for his electric commentary on the American agenda. He has interviewed many key political figures, which include Former President Bill Clinton, Vice President Al Gore, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Steve Forbes, New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Ralph Nader and Ken Starr.

Colmes hosted his own self-titled late night radio talk show on WEVD-AM. After penetrating the Boston market with a hit radio show on WZLX, Colmes went from major market success to national talk radio prominence in 1990 with his fast-paced and informative afternoon news-driven show, which aired daily on hundreds of affiliates nationwide. Most recently, he returned to radio as host of a news-driven late-night talk show The Alan Colmes Show, which is syndicated by the FOX News Channel.
