JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Longtime Mississippi TV journalist Bert Case is improving while he remains hospitalized to recover from an infection.

WAPT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1KvNEDu ) that the 76-year-old Case awoke from sedation Monday at St. Dominic Hospital.

He was admitted three weeks ago with sepsis.

His wife, Mary Weiden, says Case answered questions from hospital staff members early Monday, saying he knows he works in TV.

Case recently celebrated his 50th year on the air in the Jackson market.

One of his most memorable on-camera interviews happened in June 1999. Case, then with WLBT-TV, asked Gov. Kirk Fordice about traveling to Paris with a woman who wasn’t the first lady.
