Online contributions are now being accepted for a memorial fund supporting the families of two broadcast journalists slain last month during the ROANOKE TV shooting. Those wishing to contribute to the ALISON & ADAM MEMORIAL FUND can do so at www.nab.org/donate. Donations to the fund will be accepted until the end of NOVEMBER.
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS, the RADIO TELEVISION DIGITAL NEWS ASSOCIATION and the NATIONAL ACADEMY OF TELEVISION ARTS & SCIENCES previously announced the creation of the fund on behalf of ALISON PARKER and ADAM WARD, employees of WDBJ-TV ROANOKE, a CBS affiliate owned by SCHURZ COMMUNICATIONS, when they were tragically killed by a former employee of the station during a live broadcast on AUGUST 26th (NET NEWS 8/28).
A portion of the contributions will be distributed to family members of PARKER and WARD by the NAB. An additional contribution will go to VICKI GARDNER, Executive Director of the SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE REGIONAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, who was shot during the attack but survived.
Those wishing to make an offline contribution to the fund can still do so by sending a check made out to:
