Alan Colmes Announces Departure On Air: 'I'm Proud Of Fox News'

Last night, on Hannity And Colmes, co-host officially announced his plans to depart the show he's co-hosted for twelve years: "At the risk of stealing President-elect Obama's buzzword, change is coming to this show." As reported, Colmes will stay with the Fox network, producing radio and web content. "I am proud of the Fox News Channel," Colmes said, repeating the "My work is done" quip that he gave TVNewser as news broke of his departure. Sean Hannity thanked Colmes, joking, "I can't believe you're doing this to me. You're leaving Barack Obama to me." "Lots of luck," Colmes replied.

There are no plans to replace Colmes at this time.
