TOKYO — Kimie Osugi, an announcer at Nippon Television Network Corp., plunged to death from her condominium in Tokyo's Shibuya Ward, early Friday, the police said. The 43-year-old announcer is believed to have committed suicide because she left a note, police said, adding she jumped off the building around 6:30 a.m.

Nippon Television said Osugi gave birth last year and had been on a maternity leave. It said she was in poor health after giving birth and had been troubled by that.
