'Liberal' Colmes Leaves Hannity at Fox News

"Alan Colmes will relinquish his role as co-host of Hannity & Colmes at the end of the year."

Lone liberal, sorta, Alan Colmes steps down as co-host. You may know him as Hannity's punching bag sidekick on the usually wrong Hannity and Colmes Variety Hour.

Alan Colmes will relinquish his role as co-host of Hannity & Colmes at the end of the year.

In announcing his decision, Colmes said, "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. 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."

Colmes will continue his relationship with Fox as a liberal commentator on other Fox News shows and a possible solo weekend show.

I have endless questions.
