"We knew it was coming," Baier said, adding that he has been in touch with Krauthammer's wife Robyn and son Daniel.

Baier said that, before his death, Krauthammer was able to see the outpouring of support and love for him and his life's work, after Baier told the "Special Report" audience of the state of the commentator's health.

"His voice is going to live on on Special Report," Baier added, announcing that if a subject comes up on the All-Star Panel that Krauthammer had a word on in the past, the show will air his comments.

Baier said Krauthammer had a "knowledge and eloquence, unsurpassed."
