Brave WDBJ Anchors Remember Shooting Victims


The Anchors Were Visibly Distraught, But Bravely Carried On

The WDBJ morning news team bravely went back to work the day after anchor Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were shot and killed on live TV.  They held hands and observed a minute of silence at 6:45 AM, the time Parker and Ward were killed.  During the time, poignant photos of the two were shown to remember their lives.

Chris Hurst, Parker’s boyfriend and an anchor WDBJ’s evening news, came on to discuss their relationship.  He said he was taking a break to grieve but would return soon because his girlfriend would’ve wanted that.  “The station is resilient, her family’s resilient, they’re strong, and we’ll be back, folks.”
