LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - Former Channel 7 Reporter Dewayne Graham has passed away.

Graham had been fighting various illnesses and medical problems for several months before passing away early Wednesday morning. He was 63 years old.

He was the face of 7 On Your Side from 1989-99, including his weekly feature, "Rip-Off of the Week," shining a light on a person, business or product that had been plaguing consumers in Central Arkansas. For his efforts, then-Attorney General Winston Bryant named him an honorary assistant attorney general.

Shortly after leaving KATV, he ran for Congress, losing in a run-off with Mike Ross. He also ran for Pulaski County Sheriff in 2006, losing to Doc Holladay.
