Anthony Bourdain was best known as the host of CNN's Parts Unknown, but was also an acclaimed writer and food critic beloved by many. He passed away on Friday morning at age 61, in what CNN confirmed was a suicide in his hotel room.
"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain," said CNN in a statement. "His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time."
Bourdain will be greatly missed.
