Though they lost two of their own yesterday, the members of the WDBJ-TV7 staff still had to deliver the news on Thursday morning.

Reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were shot dead Wednesday morning during an on-air broadcast

The gunman, who recorded the shooting and posted the video online, was a former employee of the station. With both on- and off-camera tears, the anchors held a moment of silence for their colleagues — then they read the news.
