Alan Komissaroff, the Fox News Senior Vice President of News & Politics, died on Friday after suffering a heart attack. He was 47 years old.

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News Media President Jay Wallace said in a memo to Fox employees:

“This is an extremely difficult day for all of us who worked closely with Alan, and we are completely heartbroken.”

“Alan was a leader and mentor throughout FOX News Media who was integral to our daily news operations and played an indispensable role in every election cycle,” they added.

“The recent midterm election coverage was easily one of the finest nights of special coverage he produced throughout his career. And he was the ultimate producer: breaking news, politics, special events — there was no steadier or more trusted colleague to be within the control room during the most consequential events of our time, and his incisiveness and passion for news made our work better,” Scott and Wallace said.

“He would joke that he was a guy from ‘real Brooklyn’ and rose through the ranks to become a writer, producer, showrunner and eventually Senior Vice President of News & Politics, overseeing all political coverage,” Scott and Wallace added.

“His sharp sense of humor and quick wit throughout his incredible career also led to the many lifelong friendships he made here.”

“This is an extremely difficult day for all of us who worked closely with Alan, and we are completely heartbroken,” FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and FOX News Media President Jay Wallace wrote in a memo to colleagues.

Variety reported:

Komissaroff joined Fox News in 1996 when it launched under the auspices of the company formerly known as 21st Century Fox Corp. He worked his way up from the network’s ranks of writers and producers to overseeing coverage of politics, including the network’s Election Night reporting.

“Election night is our Super Bowl, so we try to outdo ourselves every cycle,” the executive told TVNewser in 2020, adding: “Our election night coverage doesn’t have an end time. We are prepared to cover the election for as long as it takes—and even a little longer than that.”
