COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - We want to take a moment and acknowledge the passing of a WTVM employee.

Richard Heath has died after fighting COVID-19.

Richard worked in advertising sales for more than 40 years, including positions at the local newspaper and WTVM-TV. He wrapped up his career at WXTX/Fox 54 in 2007. He also served his country as a Green Beret in the United States Army.

We’d like to send our condolences to Richard’s family and friends.
