Moving images have emerged of a grieving local news station that has had to cover the horrific shooting deaths of two colleagues who were gunned down on the job.

WDBJ is mourning the deaths of 24-year-old reporter Alison Parker and 27-year-old cameraman Adam Ward, who were shot on live television by a former reporter at the station.

Ward was engaged to WDBJ producer Melissa Ott, who was celebrating her last day on the job. Parker had just moved in with her WDBJ anchor boyfriend, Chris Hurst.

WDBJ President and General Manager Jeffrey Marks said on “America’s Newsroom” that he’s very proud of his team for the work that they’ve been doing following the station’s great loss.

“They are putting one foot in front of the other, they are grieving – some very openly, some privately – but they are committed to doing the job,” he said.

Marks said that his team will continue to present the news for their community, despite how hard it has been.

“Our folks, choking back the tears this morning, went on the air and covered the news,” he said. “And we’re going to keep doing that. But it’s not easy.”

He also remembered Ward as “a wonderful, wonderful person to work with, with a great sense of humor – and not a bad softball player.”
