HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Police in Alabama say a veteran TV news anchor and former University of Alabama football player has died.
WBMA-TV Vice President and General Manager Eric Land said Christopher Sign’s work “will serve forever as a hallmark of decency, honesty and journalist integrity.”
Police in Hoover say that Sign was found dead Saturday at his home.
WBMA said Sign had turned down a national network position to return to Hoover in 2017 after 13 years in Phoenix, Arizona.
Hoover police tell Al.com that the death is being investigated as an apparent suicide.
