Alan Colmes Leaving Hannity & Colmes

Reported by Ellen - November 24, 2008 -

Colmes says it was his decision, that he wanted to move on.

I predict Kirsten Powers will replace him. She was obviously being groomed for the job.

I can't say I'm surprised. Deborah and I saw this coming months ago and often discussed it behind the scenes (Deb, if you can read this, high fives to you, girl!). I'm sure Deb would join me in saying I think it's a good move for Alan and in wishing him good luck.

Update: According to The New York Times, there may not be a replacement and the new show may be based on Hannity's America. Despite my prediction above, I think this is exactly what will happen, with Powers given some kind of significant role but one that is well under the thumb of Hannity.

If FOX News does not replace Colmes, there will be no permanent liberal presence on "fair and balanced" FOX News' prime time lineup.
