“At the turn of the century, he joined Fox News as a political analyst and helped launch “The Five” in 2011, playing the lone liberal on the panel that included Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric Bolling, Dana Perino, Greg Gutfeld and Andrea Tantaros,” according to NY Daily News.
His loss marks the end of an era, as the leader was one of the few political pundits to serve well with both mainstream and conservative media.
Beckel is survived by his two children.
