A former WBEX announcer passed away this week. Friends say Worley Rodehaver, Jr. was also a photographer for the Chillicothe Gazette.

"He was one of those people who would get to the scene of an accident or the scene of something going on, a lot of times, before the police did," said Bruce Harrell.

He added Rodehaver relocated in the '70s to Cincinnati where he was part of the Diocese of Southern Ohio's newsletter team and involved with the Cincinnati GLBT community.

Funeral arrangements were not yet known.
