Former CNN Host Tom Braden, Dies

Braden_4.4.jpgTom Braden, the creator and co-host of CNN’s “Crossfire,” died yesterday at age 92.

His daughter Susan Braden said her father died of natural causes at his home in Denver

Braden co-hosted the Buchanan-Braden Program, a three-hour daily radio show in Washington, D.C. with current MSNBC analyst Pat Buchanan. In 1982 he brought the concept to CNN and “Crossfire” was born. Braden was the host “from the left” until 1989.

“He was a giant of a man and one of the most decent human beings you’d ever want to meet,” said CNN’s political director Sam Feist.

Braden fought in World War II, worked for the CIA and ran for lieutenant governor of California in 1966.

In 1975, he wrote the best-selling book, “Eight is Enough,” about his eight children. It was developed into the popular television show which ran from 1977-1981.
