NEW YORK, Aug. 16 (UPI) — Longtime political talk-show host John McLaughlin has died at the age of 89.

“Earlier this morning, a beloved friend and mentor, Dr. John McLaughlin, passed away peacefully at the age of 89,” The McLaughlin Group family said on its Facebook page Tuesday.

“As a former Jesuit priest, teacher, pundit and news host, John touched many lives. For 34 years, The McLaughlin Group informed millions of Americans. Now he has said bye-bye for the last time, to rejoin his beloved dog, Oliver, in heaven. He will always be remembered. Please note, we will inform you – via this page – of memorial service details.”

His death came just two days after he missed his first episode of The McLaughlin Group in more than three decades, the New York Daily News noted.
