NBC News’ Larry Edgeworth was another life claimed, among thousands, by the deadly coronavirus pandemic that’s causing a global panic.


The world lost yet another person to the virus that has hit over 100 countries with thousands of deaths and infected individuals.


Larry Edgeworth was among those who recently passed away, after testing positive for COVID-19. Edgeworth was a longtime staff member of NBC News.

He worked in the equipment room at 30 Rockefeller Plaza and was known to many correspondents whom he worked with around the globe.


The 61-year-old had pre-existing conditions that made him susceptible and vulnerable to the disease. NBC News Chairman Andy Lack referred to him as someone “you wanted by your side no matter where you were.”


Many of the company’s staff had nothing but kind words for Edgeworth, including NBC News’ chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell, who said:


“Larry was a gentle bear of a man, the heart and soul of our extended NBC family. I was always cheered and reassured knowing he was on the team in the field.”

Savannah Guthrie of “TODAY” also paid tribute to the deceased through an Instagram post that revealed Edgeworth’s kind soul after traveling with the anchor for two months.

Several other correspondents, colleagues, and employees of the company shared kind words about Edgeworth on social media.




The past months have seen the worst of this century with a deadly pandemic hitting nearly the entire globe. However, hard times also bring out the best in people, which have been seen over the past weeks.

Many celebrities and companies donated to fight the illness and those affected by it, including Tyreek Hill, who pledged free meals to families who would have no food on their table.

The athlete’s foundation partnered with Harvesters to distribute free breakfast and lunch to youth members and families who relied on free feeding programs.

Furthermore, Hill tapped his other teammates to take action and help those in need amid this scary and trying time.
