John McLaughlin, host of the political roundtable show The McLaughlin Group, died Tuesday at the age of 89, the show announced on its Facebook page. McLaughlin was best known for his Sunday panel show, which he created in 1982 and for which he had not missed a taping in 34 years — until this past Sunday, when he was too ill to appear.

"[John] has said bye bye for the last time, to rejoin his beloved dog, Oliver, in heaven," the Facebook post read. "He will always be remembered." No cause of death has been announced, and details for a memorial service are still to come. In the meantime, you can catch up on some past episodes of The McLaughlin Show here.
