Chris Dickey was a longtime contributor at NBC.
A few favorite memories of Chris Dickey: as I was first getting to know him, he mentioned that he covered Central America in 1980s. I asked if he’d read Joan Didion‘s book Salvador. Without missing a beat, without a hint of pretense, he casually said. “Yes. It’s dedicated to me.”

To the memory of Chris Dickey, a legendary reporter, a cherished colleague and a wise editor, gone before his time. In this second photo, from January in our newsroom, he’s reading part of my book manuscript. I’m grateful beyond words for the time I had to learn from him. pic.twitter.com/27wnXPcaGS

I am devastated to learn of the sudden death of great journalist and beloved colleague Chris Dickey. Can’t imagine Paris without his magnetic presence or our coverage of major foreign stories without his deep knowledge. He was generous, kind, witty and brilliant. RIP Christopher
