Former Fox News Host Bob Beckel Dies At Age 73

Fox News reports:

Bob Beckel, a Democratic strategist and former co-host of “The Five,” has died at age 73. Beckel first joined Fox News in 2000 as a contributor providing political analysis and rejoined the network in 2011 as one of the original hosts of “The Five.”

Beckel had spoken publicly about his years-long battle with substance abuse, which he detailed in his 2015 memoir, “I Should Be Dead: My Life Surviving Politics, TV, and Addiction.” He is survived by his two children, who he often spoke fondly about on “The Five.”
