Sean Hannity divorces after more than 20 years

Fox News and syndicated radio host Sean Hannity divorced more than a year ago from his wife Jill Rhodes, according to People magazine

"Sean and Jill are committed to working together for the best interests of their children," the former couple said in a joint statement to People, adding that they separated years ago. "Amicable agreements were entered into over four years ago between Sean and Jill. They maintain a close relationship as parents to their children. Neither will have any further comments and ask for the sake of their children that their privacy be respected."

The separation was kept under wraps until now.

Hannity, 58, and Jill, 57, married in Alabama in 1993 and now live on Long Island, where Hannity grew up. Jill was a former journalist who worked for the Creative Loafing newspaper group while they lived in Atlanta. 

The couple has two children: son Patrick and daughter Merri Kelly.

Hannity worked at news/talk 640 WGST-AM from 1992 until the new Fox News picked him up in 1996. His radio talk show, once it went syndicated, landed in Atlanta at news/talk WSB, now at 95.5 and 750. 

He is now heard in Atlanta live from 3 to 4 p.m., then tape-delayed from 8 to 10 p.m. daily on WSB. He is also on Fox News live at 9 p.m. weekdays.
