Alan Komisaroff, senior vice president of news and politics at Fox News, died Friday of a heart attack at his home earlier this month. He was 47 years old.
“This is a very 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.
“Alan was a leader and mentor across Fox News Media who was integral to our daily news operations and played an indispensable role in every election cycle. Coverage of the recent midterm elections was one of the best nights of special broadcasts he has produced throughout his career. And he was the ultimate producer: breaking news, politics, special events – “There was no steadier or more reliable colleague to be in the control room at one of the most impactful events of our time, and his zest and passion for news made our work better,” Scott and Wallace wrote.
Komisaroff has been with Fox News since 1996.
He rose through the company and became a writer, producer and overseeing politics at Fox News.
Komisaroff joined Fox News in 1996 when it was launched under the umbrella of the company formerly known as 21st Century Fox Corp. He worked with the network’s ranks of writers and producers to oversee its coverage of politics, including the network’s election night reporting.
“Election night is our Super Bowl, so we try to beat every cycle,” an executive told TVNewser in 2020, adding: “There’s no deadline for our election night broadcast. We’re willing to cover the election for as long as it takes and a little longer.
