Getting error -> Bummer: Cannot read property '1' of null

I have seen the posts related and tried changing everything i can think of.

Why are my dec. variables showing up red?

app.js
const firstName = "Emmitt";
const lastName = "Harrow";
const role = "developer";
let msg = firstName + ' ' + lastName + ': ' role;

The variables that I am trying to catenate in line 4 show up green like they are supposed to in this snippet but in my workshop program they are still red and it won't let me continue untilI fix the error. Not sure what's happening here.

This code is missing the concatenation operator (+) between the last literal string and the variable role.
