Bert Case, a familiar face on Mississippi television newscasts for over 50 years, has died after an extended illness.
“For more than 50 years, Bert Case told the stories of Mississippi, aggressively and fairly holding her leadership accountable and eloquently celebrating her people," Gov. Phil Bryant said. "He was a gentleman whose signature sign-off made him an icon. Deborah and I are saddened by his passing. He leaves a beautiful legacy and will be missed by all who knew him.”
