It has been a heartbreaking week for newsrooms across the nation.
For many journalists, the deaths of Alison Parker and Adam Ward hit close to home. Alison and Adam were killed on the field doing that they loved most: telling stories and informing their community.
Today, we want to thank our own local Austin community for the continuous love and support during the coverage of two fallen journalists. Your heartwarming words give us courage to continue informing the Austin community.
From FOX 7's news director, Pam Vaught:
Your support does not go unnoticed. From organizations, agencies, to our very own viewers, we appreciate your kind words.
We thank you.
