In a statement released by Schurz Communications, CEO Todd Schurz expressed his condolences and sympathy on behalf of himself and Schurz Communications in the wake of the painful loss of two WDBJ employees:
“We are heartbroken at the tragic and senseless loss of reporter Alison Parker and photographer Adam Ward. At the time of their murders, they were involved in the most important aspect of journalism–telling the stories important to their local communities. Our focus now is to comfort their families and loved ones and to assist law enforcement in their investigation.”
The staff of WDBJ have compiled this memoriam for Alison Parker and Adam Ward.
