CNN Commentator Alice Stewart Dies Suddenly at 58: ‘So Sudden!’

CNN’s Republican political commentator Alice Stewart has tragically died suddenly at just 58 years old, the network has announced.

Stewart was a veteran political adviser and commentator known for her work on several GOP presidential campaigns.

According to CNN, Stewart was found dead outdoors early Saturday morning in Virginia.

Authorities stated that her death was caused by a “medical emergency” but provided no further details.

No official cause of death has been revealed.

Police confirmed that no foul play is suspected, the outlet noted.

“Alice was a very dear friend and colleague to all of us at CNN,” the network’s CEO, Mark Thompson, said in an email to the staff.

“A political veteran and an Emmy Award-winning journalist who brought an incomparable spark to CNN’s coverage, known across our bureaus not only for her political savvy but for her unwavering kindness.

“Our hearts are heavy as we mourn such an extraordinary loss.”

“Alice and I worked together at CNN for years, and she was my favorite Republican,” fellow political commentator Keith Boykin said on X.

“We disagreed on nearly every issue, but she was always civil and respectful.

“May she rest in peace.”

“She brought us all so much information and insight and was such a valuable piece of the team here at CNN,” anchor Jessica Dean said on the outlet’s broadcast of “CNN Newsroom.”

“We are all processing this news as it was so sudden.”


Stewart, an Atlanta native, got her start as a local reporter and producer in Georgia before venturing to Little Rock, Arkansas, to become a news anchor, she told Harvard International Review.

She was hired by CNN in 2016 as a political commentator ahead of the presidential election, the outlet noted.

Stewart frequently appeared on air to give insights.

She made an appearance the day before she died on “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” according to CNN.

During the appearance, Stewart appeared perfectly healthy.

“We always invited her to come on my show because we knew we would be a little bit smarter at the end of that conversation,” Blizter told Dean on “CNN Newsroom” Saturday.

“She helped our viewers better appreciate what was going on and that’s why we will miss her so much.”

Stewart also served as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) communications director during his 2016 GOP campaign.

She previously served as a communications director for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), CNN noted.
