ROANOKE, Va. -- The morning show for Roanoke-based TV station WDBJ 7 returned to the air Thursday morning, one day after reporter Alison Parker and photographer Adam Ward were killed during a live interview.

Several of the WDBJ news team members tweeted their thanks for the support.

Kimberly McBroom, Steve Grant and Leo Hirsbrunner joined hands and paused for a moment of silence during the broadcast at 6:45 a.m., the same time when Parker and Ward were shot and killed while filming a live report at Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta, Va.

Reporter and anchor Nadine Maeser posted on her Facebook page asking everyone to wear turquoise or maroon in honor of Parker and Ward. She wrote that Parker’s favorite color was turquoise and Ward’s was maroon for his alma mater, Virginia Tech.
