News veteran Nachman dies at 57

21 January 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

NEW YORK -- Jerry Nachman, a veteran journalist, television producer and news executive known for his outsize appetites and Lou Grant-like persona, died early Tuesday at his home in Hoboken, N.J. He was 57 and had been suffering from cancer for the past year, an MSNBC spokesman said. A restless man who admitted that he was easily bored, Nachman was editor in chief at MSNBC at the time of his death and also had hosted a daily talk show for the cable news network before he fell ill. In the late 1990s, he worked as a writer and executive producer for ABC's late-night talk show "Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher" and wrote for the NBC police drama "UC: Undercover", which aired during the 2001-02 season. In Manhattan, he remained perhaps best known as the flamboyant editor of the New York Post for several tumultuous years during the early 1990s. As a journalist, Nachman won several honors, including a Peabody Award, Edward R. Murrow Award and an Emmy, but it was the force of his personality, large circle of contacts and finely tuned reporting skills that sealed his reputation in media circles. »
