An Athens, Tennessee radio icon passed away Tuesday morning.

Hayward Armstrong, a radio personality at WJSQ/WLAR, passed away around 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Armstrong has been a fixture at WJSQ for more than 50 years, and was still broadcasting just days before he passed.

The station says Armstrong did his last broadcast November 5 and was hospitalized later that day. They say his health deteriorated quickly and he passed away at Athens Regional Medical Center a week later.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.
