American chef, author, and television personality Anthony Bourdain has died at 61. The news was confirmed by CNN with this statement:

The cause of death was confirmed to be a suicide.

"Tony was an exceptional talent," CNN President Jeff Zucker said in an email to employees. "Tony will be greatly missed not only for his work but also for the passion with which he did it."

The travel host was in Strasbourg, France filming for CNN when French chef and close friend Eric Ripert found him "unresponsive in his hotel room."

Bourdain became a household name after appearing in a series of television shows including Food Network's A Cook's Tour, Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations and The Layover, and CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.
