News presenters, reporters and entire newsrooms are posting tributes and photos in solidarity with fallen journalists, TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward.
The pair were shot dead while reporting live on air in Virginia this morning.
The shooter, Vester L. Flanagan, a former journalist at WDBJ, died at a hospital on Wednesday afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Vicki Chen, a 24-year-old investigative producer with KVUE in Austin, Texas, called on her colleagues to use the hashtag #WeStandWithWDBJ.
