Born Sean Patrick Hannity on the 30th December 1961 in Centre Island, New York USA, he is a TV host, political commentator and author, best known to the world for his extensive work with Fox News Channel, on which he has hosted his own show – “Hannity” – since 2009.

Early Life and Education

The son of Lillian and Hugh Hannity, his father was a family court officer, while his mother served as a stenographer and a corrections officer at a county jail. Sean and his four older siblings are of part-Irish ancestry. He went to St. Pius X Preparatory Seminary high school, located in Uniondale, New York, then enrolled at New York University and also Adelphi University, but never graduated.

Career Beginnings

His first job post was at the University of California, Santa Barbara college radio station, KCSB-FM, as a volunteer. His show aired for 40 hours a week, and when asked about it he said he was terrible. The show was canceled in less than a year, after Sean madeg several controversial comments, including to a lesbian caller, “I feel Sorry for your child”. Sean then joined WVNN in Athens, Alabama and later WGST in Atlanta, and several years later he was hired by Roger Ailes, Fox News co-founder, to serve as the host of the show “Hannity and LTBD” (liberal to be determined). Soon after, Alan Colmes became his partner on the show, and the creation received a new title, “Hannity & Colmes”.

“Hannity & Holmes”

From 2001 until 2008, Sean and Alan hosted their show, in the form of a point-counterpoint program, with Sean giving his conservative point of view, while Colmes was the liberal one, until Colmes left the show and Sean became the sole host of the new show entitled “Hannity”.


Sean has since hosted his own show which deals with current affairs and gives political commentary. So far, the show has more than 2,100 episodes, with Hannity becoming extremely popular. His controversial commentaries are his hallmark – he questioned Barack Obama’s birthplace, voiced theories of conspiracy about the murder of Seth Rich, and contributed to ‘fake news’ stories about Hillary Clinton’s health.

Radio Career

Aside from his success on television, Sean has also been a successful radio personality; “The Sean Hannity Show” first aired on the 10 September 2001, and is now heard daily through more than 500 stations. Signed to ABC Radio, which was sold to Citadel Communication, Sean signed a $100 million contract over five years in 2008, and now also has contracts with such radio stations as WDTK Detroit, WWRC Washington D.C., KSKY Dallas, and WIND Chicago.

An Accomplished Author

Sean has published three books so far; “Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism” was published in 2002, then “Deliver Us From Evil” two years later, both by ReganBooks, and his third book “Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama’s Radical Agenda” was published in 2010 through HarperCollins, all entering “The New York Times” bestsellers list.
