Description

NEW YORK -- Jerry Nachman, the brash, Emmy award-winning journalist for MSNBC who spent years in local television news and also edited the New York Post, has died of cancer, MSNBC announced Tuesday. He was 57. Nachman died overnight at his home in Hoboken, N.J., said the network, where Nachman had been editor in chief and vice president since April 2002. He had been battling cancer for a year; he told the viewers of his show, "Nachman," in January 2003 that he had been diagnosed with a malignancy in his gall bladder. "Jerry Nachman will be remembered not only for what he brought to the news -- insight, context and a relentless search for the truth -- but also for what he brought to the newsroom -- integrity, tenacity and a refreshing splash of humor," said NBC News President Neal Shapiro. "He will be missed by all of us at NBC News."
