Mississippi Journalist Bert Case Dies After Extended Illness

Photo courtesy 16 WAPT By The Associated Press Friday, January 29, 2016 12:12 p.m. CST Upvote JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Bert Case, whose booming voice and aggressive reporting defined television news in Mississippi from its infancy until last year, has died. WAPT-TV assistant news director Aaron Vogel said Case died Thursday afternoon at the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson, surrounded by family and friends. Case had been hospitalized since Sept. 1 after a diagnosis of sepsis, a complication from an infection. A Jackson native, Case joined the campus radio at the University of Mississippi in 1957 and took a job at Memphis radio station WMPS in 1960. Colleagues say that's where Case developed his distinctive intonation, including the "Berrrrrt Case" signoff that ended his reports. After serving as an Air Force information officer, he returned to Jackson in 1965, joining WJTV-TV, serving as news director and anchor. In 1970, he jumped to WAPT, launching newscasts at the station as its news director. Then in 1974, he moved to WLBT-TV, the longtime ratings leader in the Jackson news market, serving as a reporter, anchor and news director. WLBT asked Case to retire in 2014, setting off a round of honors, but he was barely gone a couple of weeks before resurfacing as a reporter at WAPT, still covering tornadoes and buttonholing politicians, sometimes outhustling competitors young enough to be his grandchildren. Some legends about Case aren't true, though, like the claim that he tied himself to a tree to witness Hurricane Camille as it slammed into Mississippi's Gulf Coast in 1969. "I did not strap myself to a tree, but I did think about it," Case told the Daily Mississippian in 2005. "My cameraman, Bob Bullock, said, 'Bert, you'd drown.' He was probably right. But after Camille, I was glad to see that the tree I had wanted to strap myself to was still standing." Case was deeply affected by Camille, with co-workers saying he always pushed for heavy coverage of natural disasters. Case and Gov.

That led to a Monday confrontation between Governor Fordice and Bert Case, a reporter at WLBT-TV in Jackson, Mississippi.
From there, it hit the wire, picture and all, before circling back to Memphis for an appearance in Thursday's Commercial Appeal, in an Associated Press story about Fordice's confrontation with Case. Even the cutline accompanying the picture didn't directly identify Creson, however, instead calling her "a woman identified by a local television station as Memphian Ann G. Creson."
