BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

It's with heavy hearts that we tell you about a loss in the WLOX family.

The walls of the WLOX newsroom are filled with plaques won by photojournalist Greg McNease. For almost three decades, our friend Greg peered through a camera lens, and captured award-winning images from around South Mississippi.

You may have met Greg along the way. He was the guy with the shaggy salt and pepper hair, who turned Page 13 photo essays into art.

Tonight, the WLOX family is in mourning. The guy we all called OB is no longer with us. Our hearts and prayers go out to his wife, Kristina, to his mom, and to the rest of the McNease family.

Rest in peace dear friend. And thank you for reminding us all what it means to love WLOX, and to be passionate about our work.
