WDBJ7 Offers Us All a Chance to Honor the Lives of These Two Incredible People – This Is Beautiful.


WDBJ7’s news crew, Anchor Kim McBroom, weatherman Leo Hirsbrunner, and guest anchor Steve Grant, held an emotional moment of silence for their slain colleagues Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward this morning at 6:45 AM.

“We will with time and the blessings of our many friends out there – all of you – we will heal from this,” McBroom said.

WDBJ7 wrote on Facebook, “Please take a moment today to pause and reflect to remember Alison Parker and Adam Ward. Gone, but never forgotten.”

The video was posted to the station’s Facebook page and has amassed hundreds of thousands of views.

Parker and Ward were murdered by a former reporter at the station as they conducted an interview on live television.

Vester Lee Flanagan II, aka Bryce Williams, the murderer, took his life later on that day as police closed in on him.

We all offer our thoughts and prayers to the victims’ families and their co-workers.
