Miller, born and raised in Augusta, died of a heart attack April 8, 2009, at age 67 during a visit back home for the Masters Tournament.
His first job in television had been as a weatherman at WRDW.
He later joined WSM-TV in Nashville and spent 16 years as its primary news anchorman and seven years as host of the Miller & Company talk show.
He moved out of Nashville in 1986 to become the principal anchorman at KCBS-TV in Los Angeles. He later became the sidekick of former Nashville weatherman and Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak on CBS’ The Pat Sajak Show.
Miller returned to Nashville in 1992 and resumed working for WSM.
He won many awards during his broadcasting career, including several Emmys.
