SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Dick Willingham, longtime anchor for KY3 News and broadcaster for KWTO and KSMU, passed away Friday after a short illness.  He was 82. Willingham retired from broadcasting in 1998.  His position at that time was news director for KSMU, (then Southwest) Missouri State University's National Public Radio affiliate. Prior to that he was a longtime face of KY3 News and a voice on KWTO radio. "He was a reporter from the old school," said Dana Randall, a newscast producer who worked alongside Willingham at KY3.   "Dick considered himself more of a journalist than an anchor or a star, and that probably came across in his reporting.
