A Familiar Face to Valley Viewers, Passes Away

Alicia Smith, a former producer/reporter and anchor at WAAY-TV31 in Huntsville, passed away suddenly and very unexpectedly last night.

Just over a year ago, Alicia and Terry Heaton were married. I wouldn’t be in Nashville were it not for Terry. We’ve swapped e-mail and phone calls through the years but only met a couple of months ago when he stopped by the station and welcomed me to Nashville. He is a man of very strong faith and I know he is relying on that faith this morning.

Terry and Alicia worked together at Channel 31. He was the boss, she was the Shoals bureau chief. They re-met at a Channel 31 reunion a few years ago and, as Terry wrote “they haven’t been apart since.” My thoughts and prayers go out to Terry.
