Well-known Alabama broadcaster Paulette Miller died Monday at WHOG-AM, where she worked as the news director.

The 53-year-old journalist apparently died of a heart attack, according to the coroner.

From WBRC, the FOX affiliate in Birmingham:

At the time of her death, Miller was also involved in a community project, recording oral histories of those in the Anniston area who were involved in the civil rights movement. The recordings are to be used in a civil rights museum in the area.

Miller worked for nearly two decades at WHMA (now WJSU-TV), the CBS affiliate in Anniston. Even though she was hired to work in an off-air capacity for the station, she later moved on to the news department and became popular in the community.

Funeral arrangements are tentatively scheduled for Feb. 21. at the Anniston City Meeting Center.
