NBC News Mourns the Sudden Death of Top Editor, Leaves Behind Wife and 3 Kids

Veteran journalist Vaughn Ververs "passed away suddenly" at the age of 54, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell told her audience Monday.

“For almost 13 years, Vaughn helped shape our political coverage as a top digital editor here in our Washington bureau," Mitchell said. "He was a veteran reporter whose career included POLITICO and CBS News and the National Journal's Hotline. He was also Deputy Press Secretary for Pat Buchanan's presidential campaign.

“Vaughn pioneered a generation of political journalism and he mentored so many young journalists here. He was a devoted husband and father and loved his University of Colorado Buffaloes. Our hearts are with his wife, Lisa, and their three children.

"We all miss him terribly," she concluded.

According to his obituary, Ververs "passed suddenly March 19, 2023." We and his wife would have celebrated their 30th anniversary later this year.

Kirk Bado, editor of "Hotline," called Ververs a "media pioneer beloved by his colleagues, friends and subjects for his sharp news judgment, skilled editing, and kind leadership."

A number of people on Twitter who said they'd worked with Ververs described him consistently as smart, funny and likable.

No cause of death has been reported. The obituary suggested that those who wished to honor Ververs "please consider contributions in Vaughn’s memory to the American Liver Foundation."
