Veteran journalist Vaughn Ververs died suddenly on Sunday at age 54, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell told her audience Monday.

“Our NBC News family has suffered a terrible loss with the sudden passing of our beloved top digital editor in Washington Vaughn Ververs, a mentor to many and a big-hearted colleague to all. Our deepest condolences to his wife [wife] Lisa and 3 children”

“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.
