NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Longtime WSMV-TV anchor Dan Miller died Wednesday night of a heart attack in his hometown of Augusta, Ga. at the age of 67.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dan Miller, one of Nashville's legendary television broadcasters, died of an apparent heart attack Wednesday while visiting family in Augusta, Georgia, according to family.

Accorsding to WSMV, Miller was in Augusta for the Masters Golf Tournament.

The Emmy Award winning journalist had been a fixture at WSMV-TV Channel 4, since 1969.

After spending 16 years as primary news anchor and seven years hosting the enormously popular "Miller & Company" talk show, Dan left in 1986 to become principal anchor at KCBS in Los Angeles.

After returning to Nashville in 1992, Dan resurrected his talk show "Miller & Company" on The Nashville Network.

Prior to Nashville and Los Angeles, Dan worked at stations in his hometown of Augusta, Georgia, and in Columbia, SC.

Dan is survived by his wife, Karen, and has four children and two grandchildren.

Sad news indeed. :(
I remember watching him on channel 4 when I was growing up in the '70's.
He was without a doubt a "fixture" in regards to Nashville's local news.
R.I.P. Dan,you will be missed.

I agree. Demetria is really taking it hard.I hope they make a complete retrospective that's aired all at once. I'd like to record and keep it.

For those that don't or can't see wsmv tv where you are they're streaming online.
