A longtime Fox News Channel employee ascended to network vice president died Friday after suffering a heart attack earlier this month.

Alan Komissaroff, 47, joined Fox News in 1996 at the outset of the network’s launch.

He "rose through the ranks to become a writer, producer, show-runner and eventually senior vice president of News & Politics," the network said in announcing his death.

At Fox there “was no steadier or more trusted colleague to be with in the control room during the most consequential events of our time,” the network said.

Komissaroff leaves behind a wife, Rachael, whom he met in high school, and two children, Ben and Olivia.
