The television station, WDBJ-TV in Roanoke, held a moment of silence during Friday’s “Mornin” newscast around 6:45 a.m.
Friday marks one year since 24-year-old Alison Parker and 27-year-old Adam Ward were killed. Parker was a reporter and Ward a cameraman. They were killed by a former co-worker who later turned the weapon on himself.
