OBIT: A WDBJ News Crew

WDBJ7, the CBS station in Roanoke, VA that carries this show and its sister show J!, lost two of its own this past Wednesday. Reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman Adam Ward were both SHOT DEAD by deranged gunman Vester Flanagan II who was a former reporter for said station (he went by the on-air name of Bryce Williams) at 6:45 AM. A third victim, Vicki Gardner (the person being interviewed who was shot in the back), is recovering from her injuries.

What makes matters worse is that Alison and Adam were starting their journalism careers. Alison just celebrated her 24th birthday with her boyfriend (an anchor for the station) while Adam was only 27. May those two rest in peace.

    Absolutely terrifying and sad. Why shoot innocent people? Can you even imagine being the target of a co-worker for an unclear reason?

    Thanks for talking about this, Andy. I've seen this on social media, but I was not aware that they hosted our favorite game show. May Alison and Adam rest in peace…

    Sad all around. They had their whole lives ahead of them.

    RIP Alison and Adam. 😦
