MSNBC Staffer Killed Leaving Work

By Chris Ariens 

An MSNBC technical operations staffer was struck and killed by a garbage truck on Tuesday night after leaving work, where she’d contributed to MSNBC’s primary night coverage. According to the NYDaily News 29-year-old Jennifer McNamara was struck around 2:30amET while crossing the street at West 50th St. and Seventh Ave., just a block from Rockefeller Center.

A co-worker emailed TVNewser, writing, McNamara, “should be recognized and remembered for the wonderful person she was. She will be greatly missed by the Tech Staff.”

The Daily News reports McNamara was from Charlotte, NC which is home to NBC’s affiliate news service, NBC Newschannel. We’re told Dan Abrams will mention McNamara’s passing on his show tonight.
