The former WDBJ7 News Director who hired — and fired — the man who fatally shot reporter Alison Parker and videojournalist Adam Ward says Vester Flanagan was a “professional victim” with a history of personal conflicts. Flanagan was better known by his on-air name of Bryce Williams. Dan Dennison says Flanagan had numerous conflicts with colleagues at several stations — and never understood he was the source. WLNI’s Evan Jones has the story.
